Help connect Sandbach

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 Sandbach’s Slow Ways.

A short bit of pavement walking took us high over the Salt Line former railway track, which we then walked down to along a track, which started immediately after the bridge, down the side of a garage. Unfortunately the railway line soon after here has been subsumed by a golf course, but the route easily diverts onto the towpath for just over a mile. Just before a farm access bridge before the motorway, there is a kissing gate, then a footpath and a short bit of quiet road which leads to the Salt Line again....

The route from pretty (but lacking in facilities) Alsager Station started along fairly busy road with pavements, but got a lot quieter after leaving the A road, eventually becoming a track leading up to the towpath at Rode Heath, next to a pub. The quiet road into Sandbach initially had no paving, but soon reached an attractive row of cottages where the paving started....

A safe and direct route using the canal that links the two towns. The canal runs alongside the main road for a large part of the way, so you are never too far away from traffic noise, but nevertheless this is a pleasant easy walk. The towpath is mostly grass and soil, so could get muddy in winter....
