Completed the second half from The Pheasant Inn at Higher Burwardsley to Whitchurch. Fantastic climbs, elevated views and an amazing variety of scenery. a brilliant morning of a 17 mile walk ending with a drive back to The Pheasant and some grub.

I have walked many sections of the Sandstone Trail, but not all at once. I especially love the Peckforton , Bukeley and Bickerton sections of the trail with stunning views over the Cheshire Plain.

We used the Sandstone Trail Guide book, and it was all we needed as the whole trail is mapped fully and very well described. We did some of the recommended diversions to interesting spots, which increased total mileage to 36+. It is a good choice...More

Recently walked all of the trail across 2 days. Although there are lots of signs marking the trail, i would imagine that some will be difficult to spot when covered with summer foliage so always take map as backup. Walking the trail from Frodsham direction...More

Searching online didn't produce much information regarding this attraction other than to see that there was a boo that could be purchased. In-fact I would go as far as to say that it appeared to be a best kept secret. From what I did manage...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am walking the Sandstone Trail next week - hopefully with my dog - but he is unable to negotiate stiles. Will this make it impossible for me to do the walk with him? I understand some of the stiles have been replaced with gates but I'm worried that we might get so far and have to retrace our steps and find an alternative route. Thanks in advance

Is that good for doing Sandstone Trail in April? If i start from Frodsham to Whitchurch, how can I go back to get my car at Frodsham parking?

Thank you Chloe P Do I have to book the train in advance? And How?
I want to access the sandstone trail but everything I look at revolves around having a car to reach the start of your walk. Not all of us have a car but would still like to walk but how can we reach places like this on foot. for example from Chester or Frodsham?
