A circular pub walk to The Morris Dancer in Kelsall, Cheshire. The Morris Dancer sits at the heart of the village, directly alongside the recreation ground, making it the perfect spot for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route visits a pretty church, an old hill fort and a fruit farm along the way and enjoys long stretches of peaceful paths plus the area known as Little Switzerland with its stunning views. The walk has several climbs and descents throughout, including a couple of steep sections. Some of the paths are narrow and uneven in part, they can be very muddy after periods of rain and some stretches have steep drops alongside, so good boots are a must and take care with children and dogs. There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate several kissing gates and flights of steps. There is a one mile stretch of walking along a country lane, but this is usually quiet and does have good grass verges for most of the way. For the outward leg, the paths are fenced (with electric fencing) away from livestock pastures, but you may be sharing the paths on the return leg with sheep or other livestock. If you prefer to avoid these pastures, it is possible to follow a residential road for the return leg instead. Allow 1.5 hours.

A lovely walk, quiet and peaceful when walking through the pastures. Was muddy but that’s not surprising with the weather we’ve been having. Will definitely recommend this one.

I would recommend this trail! Lots of wildlife (including deer)! Wouldn’t recommend the route we took! I like to think of getting lost as an adventure haha! Lovely little cafe and free parking - the only reason I can’t give it a 5 star rating is because the route signs are old now and need updating. VERY easy to take a wrong turn, taking you miles off in the wrong direction (although everywhere you turn is lovely!)
