(D/A) From the front door of the Parr Arms, turn left and walk down the cobbled village street past the church. Just before the canal bridge, turn right into Canal Side.
(1) After the first house, but before the second, turn right along a fenced path between gardens. After a footbridge, go through a kissing gate into Grappenhall Wood. Follow the obvious path ahead, following the electricity wires. At the end of the wood, bear right to the Wizard of the Woods statue.
(2) Go through the wooden kissing gate into the road and turn right. After 400 yards, having crossed a stream, turn left into a driveway with a public footpath sign. Pass a house on the left and continue along the green lane beyond to a gate.
(3) Beyond the gate, turn right and follow the path through the trees until you meet a surfaced path. Turn right and walk back to Grappenhall village, passing the cricket pitch on your left. When you meet the road, cross over into the tarmac path opposite. When you emerge on the main village street again, turn right to return to the Parr Arms.(D/A)
