The ride will be 33 miles long, Grade C, starting at 10 am from outside Hooton railway station. Trains arrive at Hooton from Hamilton Square at 9:42 and 9:57 on Sunday mornings. The ride leader will be John Hampson and he will be at Hooton station from 9:45. We aim to be back at Hooton before 14:00.
We will leave Hooton to go South through Capenhurst and Lea-by-Backford, then down the newly refurbished towpath on the Shropshire Union canal, stopping for a quick break in the Countess of Chester Country Park, then back on the canal to to the Chester canal basin. From there we will go along the bank of the River Dee to Queensferry and then up the hill through Shotton to the cafe at Wepre Park for lunch (or bring your own sandwiches). We will return to Hooton via Connahs Quay, Burton Marsh, Ness, Neston and along the Wirral Way as far as Willaston.
