705 Delamere to Waterloo

Here's Delamere Forest with a twist! While most walkers stay within the confines of the trees why not venture into the surrounding countryside to Waterloo? You don't have to walk as far as Belgium, for this is where French prisoners lived after their defeat at the great battle. The narrow paths in the forest are very attractive but, be warned, after a wet spell they can be rather muddy.
