Summary: The Weaver Way is a long distance footpath in Cheshire, north-west England which follows a series of canals from Audlem Locks to Frodsham. The route leads along the Shropshire Union Canals, Trent and Mersey Canal and the River Weaver. The walk is renowned for wildlife, including Hares, Canada Geese and Kingfishers. The Weaver Way is rich in heritage too, with the Salt Museum in Northwich and the restored Anderton Boat Lift which carries craft 50 feet up from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal. On your journey visit some of Cheshire’s most picturesque and fascinating towns and villages starting with pretty Audlem and finishing in Frodsham, a town which dates back to Saxon times. Further places to enjoy leisure time between Audlem and Frodsham include Nantwich, Winsford and Northwich.
