Styal Country Park

Public Transport based walk with Gavin.

7.0 mi

50m

A linear evening walk taking in the picturesque country park (though you could hardly say peaceful with an airport a kilometre away!). This route is undulating and may be muddy. This is a longer walk than the standard evening walk and within a steep-sided and darker valley, a faster pace will be required to beat the light. Opportunity for pubs in Wilmslow. As this is a linear walk if you drive to the Walk Start, you'll need to get the train back to Handforth.
