A long weekend in Cheshire

To celebrate Lyn’s (Top finish in darts) we have booked a long weekend at the Bears Paw. Present and card opening delayed us setting off so we arrived at Bears Paw at around 11.15 and decided to cycle from the pub. We set off on a bike ride through the Cheshire Lanes, following route 5 to Middlewich then route 71 . Crossed the Motorway and continued to Breteton Heath where we took the bridle track on to the small village of Swettenham, This turned out to have an excellent pub, The Swettenham Arms . Refreshed with parsley soup (I always have it if it is on the menu!) and half a round of sandwiches each we continued on route 73.

Crossing the Motorway and on to Davenham on the outskirts of Northwich. It was then a bridle track and following the Weavers way alongside the Valeroval Cut to Winsford. A short section of Shropshire Union Canal took us back to Middlewich and then it was only a few miles back to Warmington. Around trip of about 38 miles.

I now almost time to test the menu. Let hope it lives up to the reviews.

  1. Sounds like a nice weekend on our home ground Robert. I hope the towpaths weren't too muddy.
