40 miles, Grade C: Chester Towers & Spires Tour

Grade C. This is a 40 mile 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.

From Chester station we head out on 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 her at the Nag’s Head pub; Tattenhall (St Alban’s); Farndon (St Chad); Aldford (St John’s); and Bruera (St Mary the Virgin). We can visit inside some of the interesting churches- so it may be quite a long  day with lots of stops. See the route on Garmin Connect:- Garmin Connect

The Nag’s head pub in Bunbury will be our lunch stop and they have an extensive menu, including sandwiches.

We return to Chester via Saighton.
