The old track, known as Hedgerow, is probably an ancient trade route and a drovers’ road leading from Cheshire into the Peak District. It leads up to the pass or crossing point called Charles Head and is an interesting walk for another day.
If the walk is undertaken in the Spring or Summer months the meadows of Billinge Hill are particularly rich in wild flowers.
