Gritstone Trail South Timbersbrook to Kidsgrove

The final section of the Gritstone Trail, a 55km trail that crosses Cheshire’s Peak District from Disley in the north to Kidsgrove and Staffordshire in the south, starts from Timbersbrook and finishes at the Kidsgrove railway station.

The Gritstone Trail offers true upland walking, mostly over 300 metres – a surprise for those who thought the Cheshire Plain was the county’s only landscape feature! These are wide open spaces, shaped by the wind and the weather – with distant views over stone walls, lonely farm houses and sheltered woodlands.
