A disappointing turnout for a what was an excellent walk on a warm October Saturday. The route took us via fields of corn on the cob over to Budworth where we then followed paths across fields to the mere. From this point we continued along the trail to Maybury Country Park and enjoyed a stroll via woodlands to the canal. After a short walk along the tow-path we then followed the well laid out route around Neumans Flash, with its abundant bird life, to return to the starting point at the Salt Works.
Lunch was taken in the Salt Barge which was the perfect end to a day in the fresh air and countryside.
