Summary: The Sandstone Trail long-distance footpath follows sandstone ridges running north–south from Frodsham in central Cheshire to Whitchurch just over the Shropshire border. The path was created in 1974 and extended in the 1990s. Much of the route follows the Mid Cheshire Ridge but in places the trail also passes through the Cheshire Plain, including farmland, woodland and canal towpaths. Significant places of interest and habitation on the route, starting with Frodsham, are Woodhouse Hill Fort, Alvaney Cliff, Simmond's Hill, Delamere Forest Park, King's Chair (Hangingstone Hill), Wharton's Lock (Shropshire Union Canal), Beeston Castle, Peckforton Hills, Raw Head (Bickerton Hill), Maiden Castle Fort, Llangollen Canal, Grindley Brook and Whitchurch.
