lovely walk with variety of terraine canals and views, really enjoyed this walk. We went a bit wrong at the end, but hey ho, we saw things we wouldn't have seen had we taken the correct path. Lovely late lunch at the Bulls Head too.
Nice walk from Rainow and around Lamaload Reservoir.
This delightful walk beginning in the pretty village of Prestbury.
This is a lovely walk up a gentle incline to Styperson Pool and above to Long Lane. There are good views towards Alderley Edge and Bollington.
The Cheshire sector of the Peak District National Park is often seen as uninteresting and this route goes some way to dispel this myth. The route does have a couple of lengthy steep ascents towards the end but effort is rewarded with excellent and varied landscapes. Conditions underfoot can be very wet after heavy rain so appropriate footwear is essential.
The Gritstone Trail runs for 56 km through the Cheshire countryside, west of the Peak District, from Disley to Kidsgrove. This second stage picks up the trail at Langley, having left Macclesfield and taken the towpath along the Macclesfield Canal to Sutton Hall. From Langley, the route weaves its way over Croker Hill and Wincle Minn, joins the Dale Valley Way and climbs up to The Cloud (343m) before coming off the trail to Congleton.
Nice walk from Brink Farm to Lyme Hall passing through small parks.
