Brief Description

 There is plenty of historic interest on this walk as it starts at a former country estate and passes a unique monument to the industrial revolution and a medieval church. The route falls into three distinct segments. First comes a walk across fields to the canal at Anderton. This is followed by a long walk beside the Trent and Mersey Canal, passing the Anderton Boat Lift. More field walking leads first to the attractive village of Great Budworth and then back to the start. On the final stretch there are fine views over Budworth Mere. (Toilets at start and at Anderton Boat Lift.)
