Relatively straightforward walk, but with some mud. 15km in total. Taking around 4.5 hours, with an elevation gain of around 220 metres - predominantly climbing Old Pale Hill

Walk along The Oakmere Way (completed in 2014) towards Delamere Forest from the East - past Hornby’s Rough, Relicks Moss, a quarry and the golf course, via Delamere station to the new Delamere Forest Visitor Centre (with cafe and toilets).  

We’ll then earn our lunch wending our way up to the top of Old Pale Hill.  Despite not being a major mountain, there are good views of Liverpool, across Cheshire and into Wales.  We can then venture into Nettleford Wood, down onto the Sandstone trail and into Delamere Forest.  With a bit of crowd-avoidance through the trees, we’ll get back to Delamere station and then head East back to the start.

It’s around 15km in total.  Taking around 4.5 hours, with an elevation gain of around 220 metres - predominantly climbing Old Pale Hill.

If this is your first venture out on a walk since lockdown, bear in mind that you may not be as fit as you used to be!
