The Cheshire walk this time is out towards Warrington and takes in Appleton Reservoir and Grappenhall.

8 1/4 miles long, the walk is described as a pleasant and rural one. It starts with a walk round the reservoir then steadily upwards for views over Warrington. Through a pretty valley, woods, cobbled village and along by a canal, there is a good variety of things to see.

The starting point is at Appleton Reservoir near Higher Walton where there is a free carpark. Meet there at 10.30am.

How to get there: from junction 10 of the M56 take the A49 north (signposted 'Warrington'). Take the first left (B5356, signposted 'Daresbury'). In Hatton village turn right, signposted to Walton. At a crossroads turn right into Park Lane; a free carpark is on the left before the reservoir. There is unrestricted but unofficial carparking on the verge opposite if the carpark is full.

GR: SJ598843, postcode: WA4 5LH
