sandstone trailThe Sandstone Trail starts in Frodsham’s tree-lined Main Street whose traditional weekly market draws people from a wide area. The route climbs steadily past St Laurence’s Church and the charming Ring o’ Bells pub, before ascending steeply through the woods to the breezy summit of Overton Hill.

The view from here is stunning and takes in the Mersey Estuary, the Welsh hills and Liverpool’s distinctive skyline.

Beyond Overton Hill, the Trail skirts a series of sandstone bluffs along the upper rim of the wooded hills before dropping down steps into atmospheric Dunsdale Hollow.
