As part of our new series, run jointly with those good folk from the Spice social club, we are presenting the first ever Marple historical ramble. Lots of walking amidst snapshots of local history ending in a fine house. A kind of “Hills, Hedgerows, History and Hearty Ale”.
On the Peak Forest trail we head to the mediaeval Chadkirk chapel and along the Peak Forest Canal to perhaps Britain’s most spectacular viaduct, then down the set of 16 locks into the heart of Marple.
Give thanks you don’t have to walk back!
* 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.
On the Roman Lakes ramble we head further south, to quaint Marple Bridge village and then through the glorious countryside to the great lakes and back.
* Warning: this is a seriously picturesque walk.
