Description

(D/A) Begin this walk on Smith Lane and take the footpath (opposite Smith Lane Farm) to Broadoak Lane after carefully crossing the railway line.

(1) Cross Broadoak Lane and take the footpath ahead, just to the left of Broad Oak Farm, along the North Cheshire Way. There are many horses along this stretch of the walk.

(2) After Parkgate Farm turn left along Parkgate Lane and then left at Mobberley Road. Carry on a short while and turn right into Shaw Drive and then left into Overfields and carry on until the children's playing field.

(3) Turn right after the playing field and walk through St Johns Wood.

(4) Turn left on exiting the wood into Boothfields and follow this until it meets Longridge and turn left.

(5) After a short while, take the footpath on the right across the heathland. Follow the paths on the right to view Booths Mere and then return to the footpath towards Pavement Lane. Turn right here towards Springwood Farm along a very pleasant route.

(6) Turn left towards Glevehouse Farm. Note the footpath around Glevehouse farm has been redirected slightly and the new route is well signposted. Follow the footpath from Glevehouse Farm towards Town Lane, viewing the ponds on the left.

(7) Turn right at Town Lane and then left along the footpath just before a farm and continue across fields and over a stream on the footbridge towards the Church and Church Lane.

(8) Turn left at Church Lane and then left along the track at Dairy Farm. Turn right at Valewood Farm and then left a little further along towards the start of the walk at Smithlane Farm.(D/A)
