From Hale village, I had to cycle about a couple of miles on a road before getting back onto the trail. Pickerings Pasture has been very well done and looks as if it has been like that for years. Probably it was just fields and some of it industrial land. On the way back there are views of the Mersey with the Industrial area in the background, a contrast to the pretty meadows. The steps getting over Ditton Brook are shown better in the photo coming back. Quite steep.
