Moors and Dragons

Public Transport based walk with Mike Dent.

12.0 mi


Leader to meet at walk start

A circular variation of my first walk, this time circling back through Hadfield to the delights of the Green Mill Brewry in Broadbottom.

A steady acent out of the village brings us to Mottram Church (which if you've walked in the area you will have seen perched on the hill), then its up on to Hobson Moor overlooking Brushes and Swineshaw reservoir - which may or may not be home to a dragon for you to feed sheep and children. We then drop down in to Hadfield and loop round back to Broadbottom.
