|The Combermere Arms and Burleydam|
|Author: Pub Walker, Published: 22 Sep 2013||Walk Rating:|
|A 3 mile circular pub walk from the Combermere Arms in Burleydam, Cheshire. The Combermere Arms is a classic Cheshire country inn with plenty of nooks and crannies and lots of character. The walking route performs a simple loop through the surrounding countryside, taking in the peaceful setting of the farming landscape. |
The walk has just a few gentle climbs and descents throughout. The route follows a mix of quiet lanes and field paths, the latter of which can be quite muddy and uneven underfoot so good waterproof boots are a must. There are a couple of sections of road walking. The sections are relatively short but the traffic can be quick so stay on the grass verges and be aware of oncoming vehicles. There are several kissing gates along the way, but no stiles. Whilst some of the fields are arable crop fields, three of the fields are grazing pastures for cattle so take care with dogs (we also came across a couple of friendly pet pigs in one field). Allow 1.5 hours.
Burleydam is located on the A525 to the east of Whitchurch, close to the Cheshire/Shropshire border. The walk starts and finishes from the Combermere Arms which has its own large car park alongside. Approximate post code SY13 4AT.
|Start to Cattle Grid|
Start point: 52.9809 lat, -2.5908 long
To begin the walk, walk along the pub car park away from the pub to reach the hedge at the bottom. On the right you’ll see a metal gate out to the road with a footpath sign, do NOT go through this instead turn left to join the grass footpath between hedges, passing the pub’s LPG cylinders on the left. Go through the next metal gate into a field.
|Cattle Grid to Veterinary Practice|
Start point: 52.9737 lat, -2.604 long
Turn left down the tree-lined tarmac avenue. Follow the tarmac lane and use the wooden gate to pass alongside the electric entrance gate leaving Bank Farm. Eventually you will emerge to a T-junction with a tarmac lane. Turn right along this taking care of any occasional traffic.
|Veterinary Practice to End|
Start point: 52.9781 lat, -2.6096 long
Keep ahead for just a little distance further and take the next road on the left. Follow this pretty, quiet tarmac lane for some distance, passing Wood Farm on the right about half way along. Take time to enjoy the beautifully kept hedges along this lane, with hawthorn and other native species providing a haven for lots of wildlife.

Excellent clear instructions. The main A road was the only short stretch that was less pleasant than the rest of this pretty walk.

The off-road sections are fine although a little overgrown in places, be aware though that this walk includes two sections along main “A” roads which can be quite dangerous especially during peak traffic times, I wouldn’t recommend the walk if you have children with you.

Great App - never get lost! by The Parallax View Best couple of quid I’ve spent in a long time. Walks are well described & it’s easy to see if you’ve wandered off the mapped tracks via GPS. Degree of difficulty is useful too - can choose a 2 Welly, 5 mile walk with a pub at the end for a relaxing Sunday.

Wow what a lovely experience it was using your app worked perfectly from the off for the first time found walks nearby we would have never found, brilliant work guys and gals.
This is a great app. Easy to use. Great selection of walks and very uncomplicated instructions, good simple maps. Other walking apps I have tried can be very confusing, this one is just right. Thank you
I used the app for the first time this afternoon. I lead regular ‘Walking for Health’. The app is terrific!
I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
