Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Stu Edwards .
Just one stop after the Greater Manchester Border puts us in Ashley, a quaint village in rural Cheshire. A gentle, circular stroll, takes us on quiet paths and bridleways over the Cheshire Plain. The ideal evening escape after the 9 to 5 routine...with easy connections via Metrolink.
