Blue THURSDAY Farndon & Alford

20 August 10:00-15:30


Farndon to Aldford circular 20 August 2020
Grade: Blue Number of dogs allowed: None

Covid-19

Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.

Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.


This is a fairly flat walk over fields and lanes, heading north from Farndon car park via Churton towards Aldford.    On the outskirts of Aldford our route heads west to the banks of the Dee, where we head south along the river back towards Farndon, passing the fishermen’s cottages.
