Beautiful walk from Fulshaw Cross to Alderley Golf Course.
Lovely parts of the walk are with swathes of Bluebells along the steep banks down to the River Bollin in Spring.
There are a few farms along the route, farm animals to see and a surprising number of wildflowers.
This interesting walk through Pownall Park takes in Carnival Fields and St. Olaf's Chapel which was built by the Boddington Family. Sadly, it is now just a ruin. Some of this route follows public footpaths through the Pownall Park area which are now are pretty much back alleys through the area.
This walk starts from Wilmslow Park and follow River Bollin to Handforth.
Lovely flat walk from Heyes Lane to Prestbury Road.
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.
Easy walk from Upcast Lane to Clay Lane and around Row-of-Trees.
