Green: Sunday Peckforton Circular

25 October 10:00-13:30

Peckforton Mere Circular Sunday 25th October
Grade: Green Number of dogs allowed: Two


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 walk starts and ends at the Sandstone trail car park in Higher Burwardsley.

We leave the car park and walk along quiet lanes and tracks towards Peckforton.  We then cross fields to reach Stone House Lane and continue towards Beeston.

We leave the lane to take footpaths across fields – these may be muddy if has been raining. We walk through Peckforton Mere nature reserve, passing between Peckforton and Beeston castles with good views of both on a clear day.  We return to Burwardsley climbing steadily (and slowly!) through the woodlands of the Peckforton Estate.
