Description

(D/A) Walk down Knutsford Road stopping to admire the fine old houses.

(1) Turn left into Stockton Road and continue to the footpath at Stockton Farm on the right. Follow the lightly wooded path that runs into Alderley Edge Golf Course. The path across the golf course is marked with white posts. Be patient and careful if there are golfers about.

(2) At the exit into Brook Lane, admire the fine terraced houses and thatched cottages. Turn left and head up Brook Lane for a short distance towards Alderley Edge.

(3) The path on the left back into the golf course is easy to miss. Follow the route across the golf course, pass through the styal, and head on towards Alderley Edge bypass (Melrose Way). Just before you reach the bypass, have a look at the little pools on your left towards the houses.

(4) Turn left at the end of the bypass onto Alderley Road towards Wilmslow and back to the start of the walk.(D/A)

Lindow Common is a very popular area and is well worth a visit in its own right. The common is crisscrossed by numerous footpaths and contains the Black Lake. It’s worthwhile exploring areas away from Black Lake where there are some small pools and expanses of heather. There is a lot of conservation work being carried out on the common which is designed to keep its open aspect and to protect wildlife and fauna. It is designated as a site of special scientific interest.
