Weaver Way

Weaver WayTaking you deep into some of Cheshire’s finest countryside, the 20 mile Weaver Way follows the gentle path of the meandering River Weaver down the spine of our beautiful county.  Stretching from Frodsham in the north to Winsford Flash, the route leads you along the River Weaver and Navigation.

Walkers can watch for wildlife along the way, from sprightly hares to Canada geese, or delight at the bright blue and orange kingfishers that launch themselves upon unsuspecting fish from high overhanging trees.

The Weaver Way is rich in heritage and a large amount of it is linked to the county’s now much mellowed industrial legacy.  Visit the Weaver Hall Museum in Northwich where the story of Cheshire’s exploitation of this valuable mineral is told.  Or take a trip on the restored Anderton Boat Lift, carrying you 50 feet up from the River Weaver to the Trent and Mersey Canal.

On your journey visit some of Cheshire’s most picturesque and fascinating towns and villages.  Founded in the Saxon times, Frodsham is a great place to explore, boasting attractive buildings, good pubs and fine restaurants or enjoy the bustling town centre of Northwich with its vibrant market and variety of shops.

Whether taken in stages, or enjoyed in its entirety, the Weaver Way leaves a wealth of memories - of tranquil countryside, abundant wildlife, unique culture, rich heritage and vibrant events. 

The Weaver Way is part of the wider Weaver Valley project - a commitment to investing in regeneration activities throughout central Cheshire.  The development of the Weaver Valley has the potential to deliver enormous economic, social and environmental benefits to the region.
