Bluebell Wood and Sandbach Farm
This short round (1½ miles) can be taken as the turnaround of a walk down School Lane, or a car can be parked at the entrance to Sandbach Farm (ref 865 726).
From School Lane walk along Bearhurst Lane (opposite the back gate to Henbury Hall). After 400 m a footpath on the right leads from the south end of Bluebell Wood (Huntley Wood), across the fields to Sandbach Farm. Here there are links to Walk 2.
Sandbach Farm displays a 1641 date plaque. From 1700 it was farmed by three generations of the Sandbach family who were also tanners. In 1734, Samuel Sandbach was an Overseer of the Poor for Henbury.
Turn right and take the farm road to the parking spot on School Lane. Here go right to complete the walk.
