Cheshire Ring Circular Canal-side Walks Guidebook

Cheshire Ring Circular Canal-side Walks Guidebook

author: Sally Bailey
This book contains 20 circular walks ranging from 2.75 to 6.5 miles in length and covers the eastern side of the Cheshire Ring canal system. The walks take you along the Macclesfield, Peak Forest, Ashton, and Rochdale canals, from Kidsgrove in the south to Castlefield, Manchester in the north. The book highlights the huge diversity of Cheshire, from the glorious countryside to the rich industrial heritage found in both urban and rural areas.

Each walk follows the towpath for on average 2 miles, with a return section on a combination of paths, tracks and roads. The walks are not strenuous and are aimed at people who want to spend 2-3 hours exploring contrasting areas of Cheshire, possibly followed by refreshment in one of the local establishments. The more serious walker may wish to combine two walks together, as they follow on from each other.

In addition to giving clear directions for the walks, there is additional information about points of interest, local history, places to visit and pubs and cafes nearby. Each route is accompanied by a detailed map and photographs. A practical information panel gives distance, time, starting point with grid reference, OS Explorer map sheet number, and how to get to the start by car. This book is the second of two volumes of circular canal-side walks which together take you around the whole 97 miles of the Cheshire Ring.
