About the location
Chester 13 miles
Bickerton is one of the few remaining lowland heaths in Cheshire. It's a place of wild and rugged tranquility, with open heath, woodland, and splendid views towards distant hills. It has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its lowland heath plants and wildlife. In addition to the SSSI, Hether Wood is a Site of Biological Importance and a great place to find a quiet spot to walk in amongst the sweet chestnut, birch, oak, rowan and beech trees. The red sandstone of the area comes dramatically to the surface across the landscape. An Iron Age fort, Maiden Castle, a Scheduled Ancient Monument of national importance lies at the highest point of the hill - 212m above sea level. On a fine day you can see all the way to the Welsh mountains. The castle was built at Bickerton between 500 and 600 BC, and was probably still occupied when the Romans arrived in Britain. The whole site would have been a bustling settlement with stone and timber buildings, trackways and livestock enclosures. Today you can still see the two semi-circular ramparts that were used to defend the settlement. A short drive away you can visit Beeston Castle, explore the stunning Cholmondeley Castle Gardens, or spend an afternoon at Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre. Delamere Forest is great for picnics and birdwatching, and there are several walking and cycle routes to be enjoyed too. The Historic City of Chester can be reached in less than half an hour. You can walk the perimeter of the city on the original Roman walls, discover the amphitheatre and visit the city’s wonderful cathedral. It is great for shopping and dining out, offering a good selection of restaurants and quirky cafes, as well as bars and pubs where you can sample the local nightlife. As well as exploring Cheshire and Chester, you can easily venture across the border into North Wales!
