Description

(D/A) From the car park, cross the road and turn right, following the pavement downhill. Cross the end of Delamere Road then, after crossing a stream, turn immediately left through a kissing gate onto a footpath. Follow the path through a patch of woodland with the stream on your left, then walk along the left-hand edge of the field beyond to a kissing gate and into a narrow lane.

(1) Turn left along the lane for half a mile, passing some fishing lakes along the way. At a junction turn sharp left (Old Lane). Cross Delamere Road into a descending track and follow it downhill past a smallholding. Cross the stream via a stone slab bridge and follow the ascending path beyond, passing under a railway bridge.

(2) When you reach Stable Lane, with a quarry entrance on your left, follow the road ahead. At the main street in Mouldsworth, a shortcut to the Goshawk can be had by turning left. Otherwise, cross over the staggered junction and follow Chapel Lane (signposted to Manley Mere).

(3) After 300 yards, just beyond a converted chapel on the left, turn left through a gate next to a ladder stile. Follow a gravelled path along the bottom edge of the field, then turn left at the end to another gate by a stile in the corner. Cross two paddocks to reach a gate into a driveway, where you turn left.

(4) At the end of the drive, turn right along the road for a few yards before turning left into the driveway to Rose Bank Farm. When the drive swings right into the farm, follow the fenced footpath across the field ahead of you. On regaining the B5393, turn right and walk back to the Goshawk.(D/A)
