Bollington - Saturday 9th April 2016

On a fine sunny Saturday morning seven of our group prepare ourselves for a ramble in the Bollington area. From the Rangers Office in Bollington we set off along the Middlewood Way towards Marple before turning off after about one mile to take the short ascent across fields to Styperson Lake, Here we took a short stop to view the wildlife before making the sharp steep ascent up to Long Lane.

By this time it was 'Coffee Time' and we found a suitable bench where we could sit and enjoy the views across Cheshire and out to the Dee Estuary. Well rested we then made the descent across open fields to join the towpath along the Macclesfield Canal. Leaving at Bollington we enjoyed a pleasant stroll through the local park and back to our start point.

After our morning exertions we then adjourned to the Vale Inn where we all enjoyed an excellent lunch.
