As a Cheshireman I'm probably one of the few people on this forum able to get away with saying - there are too few good walks in Cheshire :)

You'll certainly not get any of the Herriot Way or Tributaries scenery in Cheshire - there are too few hills.

However, having said that I spent a lot of time in my early days of walking in Cheshire and managed to find quite a few enjoyable walks, which I return to now and again.

The best area is right on the eastern edge of Cheshire as it joins the Peaks District. Shutlingsloe, Shining Tor, Goyt Valley, The Cloud, Mow Cop, Croker Hill all just about fall within the Cheshire boundary and they provide the best moorland/hill walking there is in the county.

For central Cheshire you have the Sandstone Trail, which can be used as a basis for a number of circular walks - it follows the sandstone ridge which runs north/south through the county, passing through Delamere Forest, which in itself has a number of great wooded paths. Look at the areas around Beeston Castle and Peckforton.

You could also search for walks around The Roaches, Lud's Church, Gun and Rudyard Reservoir

For walk routes have a look at http://www.go4awalk.com and search in the Walks area under the OS maps for Cheshire (267 and 268)
http://www.go4awalk.com/walks/interacti ... ?map=EX267
http://www.go4awalk.com/walks/interacti ... ?map=EX268

They don't have many but there are a few.

You could also check out my walks list for 2005, 2006 and 2007 - there are quite a few walks detailed in there, using the areas I described above.

Hope that helps
Cheers
Stuart

Delamere is right on my doorstep so if you fancy some company I would be happy to walk you around one of my regular 4 or 5 mile walks.
