Sandstone Trail

Buy Me a Coffee at

Declared one of Britain's best walks, the Sandstone Trail is a walk through Cheshire's sandstone hills. Offering glorious panoramic views, castles, history, unusual canal locks, lots of sandstone, and even a few fields, it's a gem of a walk. And at 35 mile/56km, it only needs three days to walk it.

I found some time in March 2022, and went to see just how much sandstone one person could get to see.
