Public Transport based walk with Gavin.

Walk Leader might join at Oxford Road.

JOINT WALK WITH THE MANCHESTER WEEKEND WALKERS

A linear walk out of Runcorn picking up a familiar canal. There's a pub stop early on to support the local economy. We follow the canal a little further, then drop down to the Weaver Navigation. Our gradual ascent after that takes us up to Frodsham's famous viewpoint. There are a few boggy places but there are large sections of quiet country roads/towpath/farm tracks.
