Brief Description

We park by the Spires Hosp. in Stretton. Then walk along Hatton Lane before turning right across fields and lanes to the edge of Walton Hall GC. (good views across Warrington and Liverpool?). We then make our way to the Bridgewater Canal.. After approx 1k we leave the canal at Lumb Brook and walk along the Dingle to Fords Rough. We return to Stretton by the Roman Road, passing the church, with an unusual clock face. The paths will be good but muddy in places.
