Welcome to The Cheshire Sandstone Ridge Website. Rising dramatically from the Cheshire plain, the Ridge covers 230 sq km of rolling hills and escarpments, punctuated with glacial meres and mosses. Stretching from Frodsham in the north to Malpas in the south, this is rural Cheshire's magical landscape; rich in history and wildlife, and linked by the popular Sandstone Trail. In June 2021 we were thrilled to be shortlisted for AONB designation and we are now involved in the very lengthy and rigorous process as we work toward this outcome.
