Stretton Parish Council are looking for a replacement Public Rights of Way (PROW) Officer, following the resignation of its current Officer John Appleton


As PROW Officer you would be required to monitor the 11 rights of way within the Parish by regularly walking the public footpaths and bridle-paths in order to identify any concerns regarding access, styles, signage and obstructions which should be reported to Warrington Borough Council to facilitate any action required. 


Preserving these paths is essential in the maintenance of our countryside and we encourage all residents to try to use them whenever possible. The Parish Council would love to hear any feedback from your experience.


Finally, Stretton PC would like to thank John for undertaking the role on their behalf and looking after the lovely countryside we enjoy within Stretton.



Footpaths of Stretton


In Stretton there are 11 public rights of way which are numbered 1 - 12 with no number 11

Footpath 1 follows along the Roman road from St Matthew's church to Owen's corner

Footpath 2 stretches from style on Summit Close to Well Lane next to Tanyard Farm in Lower Stretton

Footpath 3 is the bridle way from Tanyard Farm, around Moss Hall and further to Whitley Reed

Footpath 4 starts opposite Mosswood Hall on Stretton Road and continues across field to Walnut Tree Lane in Appleton Thorn

Footpath 5 starts at kissing gate opposite Stretton House on Northwich Road and continues across fields to School Lane in Whitley

Footpath 6 starts at the end of the old Tarporley Road near the Hollow Tree pub and continues across a number of fields to Pilmoss Lane in Hatton

Footpath 7 starts at Moss Hall in lower Stretton and continues alongside Stretton and appleton Moss to Arley New Road in Appleton Thorn

Footpath 8 is a cul de sac footpath as a result of the M56. It starts next to Mosswood Hall on Stretton road through fields and finishes at the motorway!

Footpath 9 starts at style next to Wayside cottage on Northwich Road and follows fields to Roolymoor House on Tarporley Road

Footpath 10 starts near Applejacks Farm, follows the bridge over the M56, turns right and follows the motorway for a short distance and then splits into different paths leading to Appleton Thorn


No footpath 11

Footpath 12 is a short distance of pavement leading to the Stretton Fox 

Lots of these footpaths link with other parish footpaths and can provide a good circular route
