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 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
