Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Dysart Arms in Bunbury, Cheshire. The Dysart Arms is a classic English village pub with lovely open fires, lots of old oak and a really pleasant garden. The walking route performs a simple loop around the surrounding countryside with chance to visit the nearby Bunbury Mill, an old watermill, and lots of peaceful stretches through the local fields and pastures. The walk is relatively flat with just a few gentle inclines. The paths are almost all across grass pastures and these can get very muddy after rain so good waterproof boots are a must (along with a change of shoes for the pub!). You will need to negotiate a number of kissing gates plus 11 stiles, some of which are very tall (so may pose a challenge for less able people), and enclosed (so dogs may need a lift over). The large fields you cross are likely to be holding cattle, sheep and horses so take care with dogs. Bunbury Mill is only working on Sunday afternoons in the summer months, so time your walk accordingly if you want to see the mill in action. Allow 1.5 hours.

Bunbury is located south of Tarporley and north-west of Nantwich. The walk starts and finishes at the Dysart Arms on Bowes Gate Road. The pub has its own small car park, but at busy times please park in the village streets with consideration for residents. Alternatively you can park at Bunbury Mill (Waypoint One). Approximate post code CW6 9PH.

Directions too vague for the middle section. Very muddy. Need to book a table to eat at the pub at the weekend.

Great little walk with plenty of opportunity to add another couple of miles if you wanted.
