Passing the railway station turn left into Adlington Road A5120, at the first roundabout take the second exit A5120, at the second roundabout take second exit Lees Lane B5358, turn left onto Mill Lane to the traffic lights with the Legh Arms opposite.
Note: Please check website nearer the time for parking details. The lady who runs the snack bar in the lay-by gets very upset with walkers parking and jeopardising her livelihood.
Walking Details: First the bad news, sorry gents, we won’t be stopping at the pubs !
Leaving the Legh Arms we walk past Wych Woods through pastures to the Windmill Inn. Continuing on the Middlewood Way passing Barton’s Clough Wood, Jepson Clough Wood, farms, tracks and pastures we arrive at the Miners Arms. A woodland path alongside Poynton Industrial Estate leading onto Adlington Industrial Estate, on our right is Woodford Airfield and a V Bomber may be seen. Through Adlington golf club followed by lovely pastures by Gibson Wood before returning to our starting point, I’m pretty certain a few walkers will then savour the delights of the Legh Arms.

The walk will start at 10am from Bell Meadow car park, Tarporley (Free). From Peter: a nearby post code is CW6 0DX, but rely on Bob's directions as well.
Directions to start.
Get on to the A556 towards Chester. Go past Sandiway Golf Club and, shortly after passing the Blue Cap pub on your right, turn left at the traffic lights by the Shell garage onto the A49 towards Tarporley. Continue through Cotebrook until you reach a roundabout where you turn left onto Rode Street towards Tarporley. Soon after entering the village look out for the Rising Sun pub on your right. Turn right immediately before the pub into Bell Meadow car park.
I have previously led a couple of walks to the west of Tarporley. This walk is to the east of the village but finishes on the west. We walk out of the village onto and over Portal Premier golf course, before crossing the A49 and returning through the village church yard to Tarporley. There are no major ascents or descents and the majority of the walk is over the golf course, fields, track and quiet lanes.
