A 9.3 mile circular walk taking you through varied landscape enjoying the working countryside, wildlife and local heritage including a number of local farms and halls.
By far the largest building in the hamlet of Alkington, the brick-built Hall dates from 1592 when it was constructed for the London merchant William Cotton. In 2010, prompt action by the owners and local fire brigade extinguished a potentially dangerous fire before it did anything more than minor damage.
The Hall was built in brick, dressed with Grinshill stone in the late 17th century. Originally U-shaped, one rear wing was demolished leaving the building L-shaped for many years. In 2005, the original wing was reinstated and extended along with its partner.
