Help connect Frodsham

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Frodsham’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

An enjoyable route combining both urban and rural sections, and a lengthy wander along the Weaver Navigation. Slightly rerouted from the original to correct a navigational error, the route is still foot-only, however, due to some of the terrain: fields, narrow paths etc, when off-road Starts and ends at railway stations, although amenities are better in Frodsham than they are in Runcorn, as the station isn't near the town centre....

A track along a brook (tarmac with soil and mud in places) brings us to the main road, where we cross and head down another unpaved country road. A good rural route between two villages, although use of footpaths across fields with gates and kissing gates make it a foot-only route....

The path is 95% accurate, except for the section entering the outskirts of Frodsham: there is no footpath from the fields onto Thirlmere Close (this is someone's garden!). I've submitted a new version to correct this....

This route, however, is not feasible: the footpath connecting Thornton-le-Moors and Elton has seemingly been removed by the landowner, with crops growing over the route snd stiles removed or grown over. I've submitted an alternative that skirts around these fields....

Section of footpath from Godscroft Cottages to Hatley House is very rarely walked so path is vague. Some sections very muddy when I walked it, will be easier going in Summer. A few stiles to navigate....

It is possible to stay on a path along the river and then follow a marked public right of way through the chemical works which emerges at the Liverpool Road roundabout west of the town centre, but this is extremely unpleasant. See alternative route - Frodwar two - for a much nicer option....
