pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Hayhurst Arms in Bostock Green near Middlewich, Cheshire. Originally established as the village Reading Room, today the Hayhurst Arms is a proper village pub with a well-stocked bar at its heart. The walking route has plenty of interest for everyone, taking in pretty villages, the tree at centre of Cheshire, signs of the area's historic industrial past and a picturesque stretch along the towpath of the Weaver Navigation. The walk has a few gentle climbs and descents plus longer sections of level walking. The route follows mainly pavements, lanes and stone tracks/towpaths, however one section does follow a grass track across a crop field and this can be very muddy in winter and after rain. You will need to cross the main A533 road twice. This road can be busy so take particular care and it may be worth avoiding peak traffic times. There are several gates/kissing gates to negotiate, but there are no stiles on route. One short section of the towpath crosses a water meadow which is occasionally used to graze cattle. Approximate time 2.5 hours.

It’s a long walk along busy roads and a large housing estate, but once past this it’s really quite nice. The historical notes for this walk are excellently researched and really enhance the experience.

Enjoyed the walk. Waterside paths a bit muddy after recent rain. DO take care crossing the A533 as it is very busy. Locks very impressive.
