Alderley Edge

Description

Walk the dramatic red sandstone escarpment of Alderley Edge, with views over the Cheshire Plain to the Peak District. Explore woodland paths or walk to neighbouring Hare Hill Garden.

Discover the highest point on the Edge which was originally a Bronze Age burial mound. It was later used as a fire beacon site which would have been lit as a signal to warn of the imminent invasion.

For more stunning views over the Cheshire countryside, why not visit one of the following nearby properties: Bickerton Hill and Bulkley Hill Wood; Mow Cop, the Cloud, Helsby Hill and Thurstaston Common.
