The route takes in fields/farmland through Newton, then onto East Way with views before heading into the Forest where we'll pick up the Sandstone Trail around Blakemere Moss to Delamere Sta. The return leg will start along the Baker Way, out to Buckoak, Manley Old Hall, then rejoining the Sandstone Trail back to the golf course.
