Help connect Kelsall

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 Kelsall’s Slow Ways.

At the next junction, along another unpaved road, which becomes a track and then a sometimes muddy footpath into the woods of Delamere. Past the carparks, the footpath ducks down into some woods, before coming out onto a track heading towards the railway station. A short unpaved road, but with wide verges, brings us to the main road, now paved, and we soon join the Whitegate Way via a flight of steps and a gate. The route then suggests to join the track/unpaved road, but I found it best to continue across the course following the main footpath, and then, past the tall fences on our left, take a footpath to the right heading towards the cluster of buildings ahead....

First, the route at Common Farm has been rerouted and now goes around the barns rather than through the farmyard. Secondly, the route jumps across the canal at Christleton where there is no crossing; there is a bridge a little further on. Has the beginnings of a good route, but the errors are unforgivable!...

From the centre of Kelsall (local pub, cafe, shops), a tarmac path through a playground brings us to a road, which was in flood at time of writing. Around The Commons farm, a few fields with stiles (one missing its steps) until we get to Common Farm, where the path goes around the farm buildings until we hit a good tarmac farm track. Crossing a busy-at-times bypass, the path ahead is an unpaved road, which only serves the farm we pass. A small field crossing brings us to a residential road, then, once over a bridge, we access the towpath of the canal....

This may be apparent, to some extent, if you are walking towards Chester, but if you are heading away from Chester, you would naturally walk an extra half a mile beyond the bridge to be faced with a dilemma....

It came out close to Delamere Station, along a fenced off track just south of the private golf course access road. The descent into Kelsall was quiet and offered glimpses of an excellent view, but I suspect the best viewpoint would have been from a very short detour to the masts on Pale Heights just to the south west of Delamere Forest....

You need to leave Kelsall trough the playpark next to the Morris Dancer pub and keep to the right, this is tarmaced for the first 0.5km then field mostly field footpaths to Oscroft. There is about 0.5km road walking through Oscroft and then a short stretch of field walking to Tarvin, all well signposted. There is then about 1km road walking along a quiet country lasne, then left onto field footpaths. The Shropshire Union Canal is then reached but you have to follow footpaths for 0.5km to Christleton to cross the canal bridge to get onto the towpath....

The path out of Kelsall starts well, but as the walk progresses, was terribly overgrown, but passable, in places. Beyond Tarvin, and its supermarket the walk improved greatly....

Until you get to Little Budworth you pass various properties, including one where the path is fenced in. There's some pavement pounding along the main road which might not be to everyone's tastes, but it's safe and there's a pub at the junction with B5152. Leaving the main road, a path takes you past an equestrian centre which was in full flow when I walked past. It's a really lovely section of path across the field with the ascent in the woods ahead of you. I'd suggest a route which from Little Budworth, heading east, follows the footpaths to arrive into Winsford via Hebden Green....
