Beeston and Peckforton Castles Walk – Sandstone Trail – 16th September 2017 Joint Cheshire and North Wales and Liverpool Law Society Family Walk
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.
