South Cheshire Way


South Cheshire Way

The South Cheshire Way is a 32 mile (51 km) long-distance footpath running east–west mainly through Cheshire, England, though parts lie in Shropshire and Staffordshire. The western section from Grindley Brook, near Whitchurch, runs through farmland; the eastern section from Mow Cop, near Biddulph, runs through low hills. The footpath is waymarked with black and yellow discs inscribed 'SCW'.

The path connects with several other long-distance paths, including the Maelor Way and the Sandstone and Gritstone Trails.
