FOUNDER of networking group Creative Connecting in Cheshire was delighted to be presented with a book exploring Northwich, Middlewich and Winsford at the group’s latest event in Hartford.

Cheshire travel writers Kate Simon and Suzanne King presented their book Slow Travel Cheshire at the Creative Connecting in Cheshire meeting at Hartford Golf Club earlier this month.

The pair grew up in Cheshire and relished the chance to share their love of their home county in this new book, which is aimed at locals as well as visitors.

From the beaches of the Wirral peninsula to the foothills of the Peak District, Slow Travel Cheshire uncovers the county’s diverse terrain and reveals its rich heritage along the way – stately homes and glorious gardens; contemporary art centres and cutting-edge museums; world-famous attractions and quirky celebrations.

The best independent cafés, pubs and restaurants, farm shops and ice-cream makers, microbreweries and distilleries are put to the test and personally recommended, and there are starring roles for a diverse cast of famous characters, including Elizabeth Gaskell, George Mallory and Buffalo Bill.

Sue said: “I was so pleased to see a guide book on Cheshire with such a substantial section on Northwich, Middlewich and Winsford and I wanted to share it with my group.

“We had a very interesting afternoon with 35 ladies attending the event and Hartford Golf Club did us proud with a delicious afternoon tea.”
