The Salt Line trail and Borrowpit Meadows :: Shared Description

A section of the former North Staffordshire railway (Sandbach branch) between Rode Heath and Hassall Green, converted to leisure use as a cycleway, bridlepath and footpath, part of National Cycle Route 5. It was used as a freight railway until 1971, serving salt mines around Rode Heath as well as through freight, but had not seen passenger services since 1930.

Alongside the trail is Borrowpit Meadows, a former quarry now a 16ha nature reserve.
