Marple and the Peak Forest

Next tour: Sun 27 August 2017.
Meet: outside Romiley Station, 2.30pm.

We head through the glorious Romiley countryside, clearly the most beautiful and verdant enclave anywhere in Greater Manchester, to mediaeval Chadkirk chapel. Then its through the woods, wild and wayward, up to the Peak Forest Canal and along to Britain’s most spectacular viaduct. Through Brabyns Park we will find the old iron bridge and fetch up in the even more spectacular Etherow Country Park.

* Warning: this is a seriously picturesque walk.
* Logistics warning. This is not a circular walk, so if you come by car you’ll have to train it back from Marple to Romiley. The two stations are on the same line.
