Rode Heath Rise
Rode Heath Rise is an open space with meadows and woodlands on the site of a former salt works. Today it is managed as a meadow and in summer butterflies and other insects feed on the nectar of wild flowers.
Situated next to the Trent and Mersey Canal it is a great place to rest for a while if you are on a circular walk. The meadow runs down to the Lawton Brook which is crossed by a footbridge. There are great walks from here to The Salt Line and along the canal towards Sandbach.
The Broughton Arms pub is located next to the site and provides food and drink and is open all day every day.
The meadow is cut each autumn after the wild flowers have shed their seed, ready for the following spring.
