This coming Saturday's Short-ARS walk will be led by Will Williams. Meet up on Audlem car park at 9.30am.

Will's description is as follows:

Start walk: Yew Tree Inn, Long lane, Spurstow CW6 9RD click here for details.

To get there, you can either go:

  • Audlem-Nantwich-Acton-Long Lane, which brings you right up to the Yew Tree on the right. Go past the pub to the entrance to the car park at the back.
  • Or from Nantwich/Crewe go up the A51 to Alpraham, turning left after the Tollemarche arms pub. Go through right through Bunbury to the Yew Tree and turn right onto Long Lane to get into their car park.

Amenities in Bunbury village include toilets, Co-op, pubs, café, butchers, Fish & Chip shop. As we are using the Yew tree car park it would be polite to have a debrief drink in there, and I can recommend the food as excellent.

This is a 1 Boot level walk. (Relatively short and mainly flat)., but probably two carpet-slipper (short-ARS rating) because of the stiles.

Route

6.5-6.8km / 4 – 4.2 miles. Mainly flat. This is a variation of a walk suggested by the Bunbury Mountaineers (BUMS) and posted on the Yew Tree website. There are many options to extend the route, but I will bow out of any extra mileage to save my ankle.

The route circles Bunbury via the Mill, getting some views of Peckforton castle, and taking in some interesting features and unspoilt farmland.

The Rugby World Cup final special part is that the Yew Tree will be showing the games and we should be back there in time watch it there or at home.

There will be some short sections on quiet lanes, and we cross the A49 twice. There are a lot of stiles, and some fields will have livestock in them. On the recce this included frisky young cows, who are likely to be more frisky in the presence of dogs. There is the odd muddy section but on the recce it was mainly good underfoot.
