Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.
Walk leader joining train at Warrington
Well not quite. But an early start, a long walk through the pretty Cheshire woodlands ending on Helsby Hill at sunset, where weather permitting, we should get some fabulous photos of the sun setting over our walk, and then a short walk off the hill to the station. Bring a torch in case this goes wrong!
