Sandiway Ales Brewery Trails Countryside Walk
Sandiway Ales will be running a guided, circular walk from our brewery at Blakemere whilst taking in the pastoral, arable and woodland scenery this area of Mid-Cheshire has to offer. The walk will be approximately 8 miles in length and cross through the Pettypool Estate into Whitegate Village through the hamlet of Foxwist Green. We’ll then take the Whitegate Way (a disused branch railway line which once serviced the Winsford salt mines) but is now a popular walking route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. We finally finish our walk back to Blakemere Village.
The trail is over mixed terrain, but has well defined footpaths and hardly any road walking. Cheshire’s countryside is naturally undulating so there will be some small climbs, but nothing too strenuous. Therefore, you won’t need to be super-fit to enjoy this walk…just have a little stamina! Children under age 10 might find the walk a little long, but you will know the capability of your kids more than anyone! Comfortable stout shoes or walking boots are recommended as the weather prior to the walk may have been wet and parts of the route may be muddy. We’ll keep a gentle pace and would expect the walk to take between 3 to 4 hours in total.
It is ideal dog walking territory too, so your (well behaved and sociable) four legged friends are more than welcome!
We will start at 10:00am and break somewhere suitable for dinner. Please bring some food for yourself, such as sandwiches and a drink. There are no shops on the route, however there is a café and public toilets at the old Whitegate Station. We would expect to return to the brewery at around 1:30-2:00pm in the afternoon.
The cost of this walk is just £5.00 per adult (children and dogs are free) and includes a pint of real ale on return to the brewery and a soft drink for any children.
