Around and About Macclesfield, Cheshire East
'Of course the Macclesfield Canal itself makes an enjoyable walk and very many people exploit this linear park by walking sections or even the whole of the 27½ miles of the canal, which is also one section of the Cheshire Ring Canal Walk. There are plenty of guides to its course and I will not repeat them all here ... In these pages I will note some of the many walks that can be taken from the canal - the canal providing the start and finish point and maybe a short part of the walk.'
Tim Boddington The Macclesfield Canal
Macclesfield, Cheshire East
'I live in Macclesfield, and I set up this website for no better reason than wanting to promote walking and cycling in the countryside around Macclesfield. In fact this website just started out as a set of walking and cycling routes. However, there are many more countryside pursuits than just walking and cycling, so it quickly grew into a comprehensive, single-point resource of information on all aspects of Macclesfield outdoors.'

'The Manifold Trail is often confused with the Manifold Way (Manifold Track) probably because there are so many other 'trails' in the Peak District - the Tissington Trail, the High Peak Trail, the Monsal Trail ... so everyone assumes that the Manifold Way is the Manifold Trail because it follows the trackbed of a former railway line ... '
