Cheshire Guide

The County of Cheshire offers a range of walks to suit all abilities. The Sandstone hills between Frodsham and Helsby offer fine walks with some excellent views across the Mersey Estuary. The flat land of the Cheshire Gap is dominated by pleasant rural farmland and easy walking. To the east of the county the land rises to the western moors of the Peak District National Park including the highest point at Shining Tor (559 metres) on the boundary with Derbyshire. It is in this area that most of the more challenging walks can be found with wild country and superb panoramas from the high ground.
