Overview

'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.'

'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.'

Each Map contains the route location, distance and a difficulty rating of 1 - 4 (1 = easy and flat, 4 = difficult and hilly).
