‘Tea at The Tower’ monthly guided circular walks will take place from St Mary’s Church on Monks Lane in Acton near Nantwich this year, after the success of the inaugural walks in 2018.

The ‘Tea at The Tower’ guided circular walks are carefully chosen to be good underfoot, do not involve climbing fences and are pleasant circular country walks of approximately two hours and four miles in length.

Their route is through beautiful Cheshire countryside involving the Dorfold Estate and the Shropshire Union Canal footpaths.

The lead walker matches the pace to the groups level of general fitness.

A representative from ‘Tea at The Tower’ said: “The walkers always return happy about being out in the fresh air – and they are ready for something nice to eat and drink.”

All walks start from St Mary’s Church, Acton at 1pm.

Future dates: Sunday 13th January, Sunday 10th February, Sunday 17th March, and Sunday 14th April.

All are welcome, donations are gratefully received.

The ‘Tea at The Tower’ weekly community cafe – where drink’s and cakes are served (donations are gratefully received) – takes place EVERY Sunday afternoon (2.30-4.30pm) throughout the year at St Mary’s, Acton.

Visitors also have an opportunity to have a guided tour up the church tower as far as the ringing chamber.
