About Sandstone Trail

The Sandstone Trail is one of the finest and most popular long-distance walks in North West England. It offers 34 miles/55 kilometers of superb, unbroken walking over some of the finest countrysides in Cheshire and northern Shropshire. Much of the route follows the Mid Cheshire Ridge but in places, the trail also passes through the Cheshire Plain, including farmland, woodland, and canal towpaths.



Attractions near Sandstone Trail

Beeston Castle1.94km from Sandstone Trail

Beeston was originally built as a bastion of power for the Earl Ranulf of Chester. As it’s a little-out-of the way, it was never a site of significant historical importance, but it’s steeped in persistent rumor – persuasive legends tell of the buried treasure of Richard II, who hid bags of gold somewhere on-site.  The striking ruins of this 13th-century castle stand on a 500-foot high cliff of red sandstone, providing excellent views of the surrounding countryside.
