This is a 7 - 8 mile walk involving countryside and riverside, starting in Thornton Hough, a lovely village with an interesting history.

We walk north along Manor Road to pick up the footpath through Manor Woods. We cross the A540 and follow field paths towards Parkgate and then turn onto the Wirral Way before we reach the river.

After couple kms we turn get to Gayton Cottage and follow the riverside path into Parkgate for optional ice creams.

It is then on lanes and field paths to recross A540 towards Raby but turning back to Thornton before we get to Raby.

There are a couple of wall stiles and possibly some mud but a very pretty and varied walk.

Chance of a stop for an ice-cream on route and also nice pub in the village for after walk drinks.
