Thirteen ramblers started this 6 mile walk from the Axe & Cleaver in Dunham Town and then followed the Bridgewater Canal for about two miles heading towards Lymm. At Agden Bridge we left the canal and followed paths, through pleasant countryside to Arthill. It was in this section many of us found the going difficult because of ankle deep mud around many of the stiles. After crossing more fields we arrived in Bollington and from there entered Dunham Massey Park. Leaving the park we then enjoyed a gentle stroll through the village back to the pub.
With a short break for coffee the walk took just 3 hours and we were back in time to enjoy a hearty lunch at the Axe & Cleaver.
