This is a 40 mile Grade C tour around Cheshire stopping at eight remarkable parish churches in different villages ranging from Bunbury in the east to Farndon in the south. There are a few hills around Beeston castle, but much of the route is flat on quiet country lanes.
Meeting, start and end point is at Chester railway station.
From Chester station the route takes the canal tow path to Christleton (St James); then all on country lanes to Waverton (St Peters); Hargrave (St Peters); past Beeston Castle; Bunbury (St Boniface) – also a lunch stop there at the Nag’s Head pub. Then a stone elephant, before going on to Tattenhall (St Alban’s); Farndon (St Chad); Aldford (St John’s); and Bruera (St Mary the Virgin), then back to Chester via Saighton.
