'The Park is a great place for a quiet stroll and there are three, mile long routes, to choose from (Lakeside Path / Explorer Trail or Easy Access Trail) whilst a short road crossing takes you into some attractive countryside between the park, Astbury village and Macclesfield Canal with Mow Cop and Congleton Edge destinations for those who wish to venture further.'

Overview

'Bollington is beautifully situated on the edge of the Peak District, surrounded by spectacular countryside and served by a comprehensive network of footpaths just crying out to be explored. Its industrial history can be appreciated from many of the local walks, not least the towpath alongside the Macclesfield Canal and the Middlewood Way which provides a safe walking, cycling and horseriding route along the former Macclesfield to Marple Railway. Whether you wish to be part of a serious walking group, join in with a sociable ramble or explore the countryside by yourself there is something for everyone.'

'The Shropshire Union Canal towpath is a magnificent walk in either direction from Audlem and is now the southern part of the Weaver Way. You can explore away from the canal in all directions, however, including this selection of walks in the Audlem area.' ALERT At Review, I could no longer locate a 'Walks' Section on the Website; but I have decided to retain the Link.

'The Canal is in two distinct parts. The upper section, one of the highest summits in the country, runs along the valley of the River Goyt and the lower along that of the River Tame. Separating the two is Benjamin Outram's splendid stone Marple Aqueduct together with its slightly higher railway viaduct neighbour running parallel. At Marple Junction the Macclesfield Canal, 30 years junior to the Peak Forest line, is encountered. Between the junction and the aqueduct is the magnificent flight of 16 locks rising over 210 feet (64m).'
