The Bishop Bennet Way is a route in south west Cheshire, England. It is named after William Bennet (1745–1820), Bishop of Cork and Ross (1790–1794) and subsequently Bishop of Cloyne (1794–1820), who carried out detailed surveys of Roman roads including those between Deva (Chester) and Mediolanum (Whitchurch). The way starts near Beeston Castle then heads west towards Aldford, Farndon and then south via Malpas and to his final destination at Wirswall on the Cheshire–Shropshire border. There are hopes to extend it to Shrewsbury.
