All aboard the Love Train (Calling at Disley)

Public Transport based walk with Niall MacLennan.

7.5 mi

230m

A short circular walk to blow away any champagne and chocolate covered strawberry hangovers.  No lovers leaps for those who didn't get flowers.  Expect tracks, a hill ridge, short and steep and a canal path to finish.  Rain is forcast for Saturday and the ground is muddy underfoot so boots waterproofs/gaiters are highly recommended.  The hills around Disley are exposed so do wrap up.  While the walk should be finished in good time for sunset (which will be approx 17:20) a headtorch may be a wise addition to your backpack.  Drinks and food can be purchased at the refurbished Dandy Cock in Disley.
