Cheshire's landscape unfolds as John Dutton takes you on a fascinating tour of ancient highways hidden by time and the changing use of the countryside. If you thought footpaths were created by linking farms to workers' cottages you have some suprises awaiting you with Mr Dutton's revealing walks along ten metre wide Roman roads and hidden tracks. Find salters'ways and medieval lanes with a guide that is second to none. Where hedgerows have been removed and fields destroyed by the plough, John Dutton shows you the tell-tale signs still existing while revealing ancient mills and Celtic encampments en route. Compulsive walking on routes of three to eight miles with public transport, pubs and refreshment where possible.
