This is an easy 7.3 mile walk starting in Anderton. We will head north west across fields and country lanes past a series of farms to eventually reach the village of Little Legh. After more fields we will return to the start along the Trent & Mersey Canal towpath. There are two canal tunnels on the route - the Saltersford and Barnton tunnels. Both of these have no towpath so we will take the footpaths over the top of each of them . The entrances to both these tunnels, dating from 1777 are Historic England Grade II listed.
Terrain / Difficulty
Largely flat walk across fields, along country lanes and on the canal towpath. Nettles in some places so shorts not recommended.
