A circular pub walk from the Little Manor in Thelwall, Cheshire. The Little Manor was built in 1660 and still exudes lots of original character. The walking route makes use of two adjacent long-distance trails. The outward leg follows a disused railway line which today is part of the Trans Pennine Trail, while the return leg follows the towpath alongside the Bridgewater Canal, part of the Cheshire Ring Canal Walk. The route is easy to follow and gives opportunity to enjoy the surrounding quiet rural countryside plus the bird and boat life along the canal. The route is almost entirely flat. The disused railway line is a wide, stone-surfaced track making for easy walking. The return leg follows the grass/mud canal towpath which is much narrower and can be a bit soft in places, so if you have a pushchair with you, you may prefer to re-trace your steps back along the old railway instead. The path which joins the railway and canal sections includes a short flight of steps, a kissing gate and a squeeze gap. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
