Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Stu Edwards & Katherine Hamlett.
WALK LEADERS JOINING THE TRAIN AT HAZEL GROVE.
It's time for the season of Evening Walks! A tranquil evening stroll around Middlewood and the Macclesfield Canal. Great for new and old members alike, this circular route snakes through the wooded bank of Norbury Hollow before crossing open pasture en route to the pub. Following a refreshing pint...or two.. it's time to fire up the head torch; meandering along the canal at dusk with the disinctive landscape of Lyme Park and the Cage silhouetted on the horizon...
