Public Transport based walk with John Ireland.
You can go from Middlewood to Bollington via the Middlewood way.... and that would be nice but this is a different route taking in the Bow Stones and some of the Gritstone trail to get there in time for a pub quiz.
If you're not staying for the quiz, there is a bus back into Macclesfield, or you can walk along the Middlewood Way to get there for the train.
