Sunday 13th January

The walk is 9 miles long, and is a D walk.  Nice and easy flat walk, no hills.  Also not much mud.

From the car park the first 1.5 miles is along the Trans Pennine Trail, an old railway line.  Then we make our way via lanes and field paths to the Bridgewater Canal.  We follow the canal for about a mile, then walk through Little Bollington and into the Dunham Massey park.  We’ll make a 2 mile circuit of the deer park (lots of deer to be seen today!), visiting some ancient trees on route,  Then we leave Dunham Massey, re-join the canal and walk back along this to the car park.
