We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

A good walk from the centre of Chester. For the initial 6 - 7 miles it follows the towpath alongside the Shropshire Union Canal. This offers reasonable wheelchair access (fairly flat, but bumpy in places, hard surface) at least until Egg Bridge, Waverton. After that the track - whilst of a good width, is mainly mud based. In very dry weather this could allow wheelchair access - at least until the route moves away from the towpath at Nixon's bridge. It then crosses an Inter-city railway line* which must be approached with care.
The last 2 - 3 miles then crosses fields to Tattenhall (and whilst it offers great views of Beeston, and Peckforton Castles), does include 15+ stiles.
Tattenhall has a public car park (at the rear of Alison's cafe), which has disabled parking.
I would walk this route again, and suggest it to other walkers. It passes by (or closely to) a number of interesting historical features of Chester and surrounding areas. A number of refreshment stops are also available along its length.
It is reasonably safe (care with railway line*) and direct. It follows well established routes for most of its length.
