pub walk

A (extendable along a riverside path) circular pub walk from the Grosvenor Arms in Aldford, Cheshire. The Grosvenor Arms is a charming pub with well-spaced rooms and a great outside terrace leading into a small but very pleasing garden. From the outside it appears a rather austere Victorian governess of a building, but once inside it's very welcoming. The walking route explores the village of Aldford and follows a lovely peaceful stretch of the River Dee, visiting the impressive local iron bridge on route. Aldford is an immaculately kept 19th century model estate village with a church, village hall, post office and the remains of a Norman motte and bailey castle. The walk is almost entirely flat and there are a few kissing gates/gates but no stiles. The riverside path is uneven and can get muddy/overgrown so robust footwear and long trousers are recommended. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.

Thoroughly enjoyed this lovely walk. The dog was off lead for most of the walk, I loved the detailed history as we went along. Great lunch in the pub afterwards. Beautiful village. Well described and directed walk.
