A Circular Walks around Eddisbury and Kelsborrow Hillforts

Book Tickets Online


A longer loop exploring Eddisbury hill, on the edge of Delamere Forest, and Kelsborrow promontory fort, above Willington.

This long half day or full day loop explores two contrasting mid-Cheshire hillforts. Eddisbury is the largest and most complex of the ridge’s prehistoric hilltop enclosures, while smaller Kelsborrow overlooks the lovely wooded combe of Boothsdale with its hidden pub. Together with a Roman road, Saxon burh, and medieval hunting lodge, they make for a fascinating circuit.
