An easy 7 mile walk along part of the Sandstone Trail in Delamere Forest.

Don't worry If it seems that there's no places left; put your name on the reserve list and you'll get a place if someone else pulls out. We usually tell people on the reserve list to come anyway.

We will meet at the Barns Bridge Gate Car Park and will walk through Delamere Forest on the Sandstone Trail. On leaving the Forest, the trail goes up a slight hill and the summit, Pale Heights, has a trig point and three transmitter masts which carry radio, television and telephone signals. There is a view point with views of seven counties: Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Shropshire and Staffordshire in England, and Denbighshire and Flintshire in Wales.

We then carry on along the Trail for a short while before turning off onto a Roman Road which leads to the site of the Eddisbury Hill Fort.

We will then descend to the Forest Visitor Centre when we will stop for lunch (food and drinks are available). After lunch we return to the Forest and walk around Blakemere Moss before returning to the start. There may be time to visit a local pub after the walk.
