I'm pleased to say that Denise and I completed our walk on Saturday and raised over £500 in the process. It was a blistering hot day - my car registered 20.5 degrees at 8am! - but that just made the countryside along the way look even more stunning. We started the walk from Cholmondeley Castle at 9.30am and set out towards Beeston, with views of the Peckforton Hills in the background. We could soon see both Beeston and Peckforton castles in the distance and were glad we weren't actually going to have to climb hills to see them up closer!

We then joined the Sandstone Trail along the mid- Cheshire Ridge - some sections were rather challenging so we were glad of the amazing views to compensate for this.  The highest point on the route was at Raw Head and we then headed towards Bickerton Hill and back towards Cholmondeley. The last section took us through stunning woodland back to Cholmondeley gardens and the finishing line below the castle. It took us 8 hours to cover 20 miles (with about an hour for breaks, mainly due to the heat), which we thought was pretty good going!

We'd like to thank everyone who supported us and we're delighted to have smashed our £350 target for Breast Cancer Care.
