Organiser's Description

Introduction

The Chester and N.

Start finish is at Walk Mill near Waverton.  Car parking is provided from 10:00.  It is essential that all we buy something in the cafe before our group photo at 10:45 and departure at 11:00 to reimburse Walk Mill for providing this facility for us.

Two routes are provided to Tilston---18 miles and 25 miles. 

Lunch is at Tilston War Memorial Hall near Malpas from 1:00 pm.
