November Walk - Hare Hill Circular

On a sunny Saturday morning six of our group set off on a circular walk from the entrance to the National Trust Car Park at Hare Hill. Other walkers should note, the car park at Hare Hill is now closed for the winter! Our route took us across fields towards Mottram Hall and along the North Cheshire Trail. Although the weather was sunny the recent rain made it heavy underfoot and part of the footpath along the Bollin valley had been washed away. This meant a change to our planned walk and the map was to become an essential part of our equipment.

Being true professionals we found our way to the Bulls Head at Mottram where we stopped to indulge in rather good but large lunch. From here we set off on the return leg to the start point but the path became more and more steep as we climbed up the Alderley Edge and it was at this point we began to regret the over indulgence at lunch time. However, we eventually made it to the top and into Hare Hill Garden where it was a short walk down the main drive and back to the car.

A very enjoyable ramble with some fine scenery and our thanks to Mike and Judith for leading the walk.
