Local Walks

With the help of Nige and some of our regulars, to whom we are very grateful, they have put their local knowledge to good use by creating a number of new walking guides, taking in the area’s outstanding natural beauty which all start and finish from the Plough.

The walks incorporate a number of picturesque and historic sites including the Weaver Navigation and Vale Royal Locks, Whitegate Way, Vale Royal Abbey, Marton Quarry Pool and some of the forgotten grounds of the former Delamere estate.

The six walks are tried and tested and are free to download below or you can be pick up a copy at the bar.

We hope you enjoy them and look forward to seeing you in the Plough for some well deserved refreshment!
