Cheshire, Shropshire

55 km / 34 miles
A bi-directional route from the Mid Cheshire Footpaths Society linking the Sandstone Trail with the Staffordshire Way running through lowland farmland and low hills, passing Crewe and Alsager, before climbing to the finish.

MARCH 2023:
A short part of the route of the South Cheshire Way near Hough and Chorlton is closed for gas pipeline diversion work until October 2023. (The closed Right of Way is one of three which are affected, but the only one which is on a named LDP.) Diversions via minor roads and footpaths may make use of Chorlton Lane and Chorlton.
