Event Description

Members of Liverpool Law Society, their friends and family, are invited to join Cheshire & North Wales Law Society for this now annual event.

This year's joint walk is being organised by the Cheshire & North Wales Law Society and will include both Beeston and Peckforton Castles.

A 4 mile circular trail taking in two beautiful castles set within the sandstone hills of Cheshire. The walk starts from Beeston Castle, the ruins of a 13th century castle and sits high upon a sandstone crag. The route heads out across farmland to circle Peckforton Castle, a 19th-century country house. The journey takes you along one section of the Sandstone Trail, and along the quiet woodland path through the Peckforton estate.

The walk has a few climbs and descents most of which are fairly gentle, but there is one set of fairly steep woodland steps which are a bit of a challenge to negotiate. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Walk commences from the pay-and-display car park opposite the entrance to Beeston Castle, on Church Lane in Beeston, near Tarporley - approximate postcode CW6 9TX

Attendees are to arrive at the car park at  10-30 for an 11 am start.  Please bring suitable footwear and clothing and plenty of water.

A pub lunch will be arranged at a suitable venue once numbers are confirmed.

Please email Ron.Davison@gamlins.co.uk to book your place.  Families welcome!

The Sandstone Trail stretches for 34 miles (or 55 kilometres) and offers superb, unbroken, and often elevated walking across the Cheshire plains and into Shropshire — from the ancient market town of Frodsham on the broad Mersey estuary in the north to Georgian Whitchurch in rural north Shropshire in the south
