HILL WALKS IN THE NORTH WEST 

The North West of England has some amazing walking trails.

North West England is one of nine official regions of England and consists of the five counties Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside, but our walks in the North West dont include the Lake District as we have a separate page for them due to the amount of hikes in each region.
