The Whitegate Way is suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding, and for pushchairs and wheelchairs and is an ideal traffic-free route from Winsford to Cuddington, near Delamere Forest Park. Stretching for six miles (10km) the route offers easy walking for all ages along a varied route.
The Whitegate railway line carried salt for almost 100 years, from the mines along the west bank of the River Weaver up to Cuddington where it joined the Chester - Manchester line. The line finally closed in 1966 and the old railway line has been transformed and provides a haven for wildlife and a pleasant place for a stroll or ride. Shady wooded cuttings contrast with sunny open embankments, offering spectacular views over the patchwork fields towards the Peckforton Hills.
The Plough is only a short distance from the Whitegate Way, so why not pop in and enjoy a refreshing drink or a bite to eat?
