This is a linear walk from Hooton Station to Backford along the North Cheshire Way. Please meet at the FINISHING point at the lay-by on Church Lane, near the church in Backford. Bus transport will be provided to Hooton Station where the actual walk starts. There will be a £5 charge per person to defray petrol costs. Optional meal afterwards at the Old Wirral Hundred, Capenhurst Lane, Ellesmere Port (SJ 3808 7425; postcode CH66 2BY). This will be a little celebration to celebrate the completion of this year’s package of linear walks along parts of our named trails.
