The Seven Pools of Whitegate and Marton – Hopefully no snow this time!

The walk is one of those based on The Plough at Whitegate CW8 2BP – SJ624681 Sixes and Marton Holes are the result of mining subsidence while Rookery Pool and New Pool were engineered by monks from Vale Royal Abbey. The two pools on Newchurch Common are the result of sand quarrying while the entirely natural Petty Pool is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
