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 at the big roundabout on Altrincham Road just before the airport tunnels.
This walk starts from Wilmslow Park and follow River Bollin to Handforth.
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.
Lovely parts of the walk are with swathes of Bluebells along the steep banks down to the River Bollin in Spring.
This circular walk crosses greenbelt land at Handforth Dean which may soon be built on. This is a great shame as this area is pretty unspoiled.
Nice walk around Wilmslow and across the River Bollin.
Beautiful walk from Fulshaw Cross to Alderley Golf Course.
