Cheshire, Shropshire, Wrexham

40 km / 25 miles
The Way links the Sandstone Trail, South Cheshire Way, Marches Way and Shropshire Way at Grindley Brook, to the Offa's Dyke Path National Trail at Chirk. It crosses farmland to Hanmer Mere and Overton, then follows woodland trails alongside the Rivers Dee and Ceiriog to Chirk. The Maelor Way uses public footpaths, bridleways, quiet lanes and canal towpath to pass from Grindley Brook through unspoiled undulating countryside to Bronygarth in the shadow of Chirk Castle.
