Details of our Next Walk 

 

Next walk Sunday 2nd June Macclesfield Forest, Shutlingsloe and Forest Chapel.  Walk leader Kati Kang 

A moderate walk of almost seven miles starting from the Leathers Smithy at Langley at 10:00am, we will head round the Ridgegate Reservoir and up through the forest stopping for a coffee break on Nessit Hill and then on across Piggford Moor to the summit of Shutlingsloe. We then descend back down to the moor and along the ridge over Buxtor Hill and along the track and then the lane to Forest Chapel where we will stop for lunch. We then enter the forest and follow the track down through the forest and back to the start at the Leathers Smithy. A few hilly bits but nothing we have not done before.

Meet at Macclesfield Railway Station ready to leave at 0930am. NOTE this is an earlier start from the station as we will start the walk at 10:00am.

We will share cars as necessary.  If anyone wishes to go straight to the starting point please contact the Club or the Walk Leader.

On a Sunday parking can be quite busy so an earlier start will be beneficial.

Please ensure you park in the designated free parking bays on the roadside and within the white lined bays.

 

Note there is a Church Service for Walkers and Cyclists at Forest Chapel at 3.00pm if anyone is interested but we will be back at the cars long before then.

    We are a small friendly walking club from Macclesfield. There are walks usually on alternate Sundays throughout the year          and we also arrange occasional walking weekends away staying in hotels or bed & breakfast accommodation..
 
Walks are graded from short and easy for the less fit or beginner through to more strenuous hill walks.
Prospective members are welcome to join us on two walks to get to know us before paying the £8 annual fee.

Walk Notes
The Club welcomes anyone who enjoys walking, but is not able to provide specialist care or supervision. A young person under 18 must be accompanied  on the walk by a parent or other adult with parental responsibility. A vulnerable adult must be accompanied on the walk by a carer. Dogs may accompany walkers but must be kept on a leash.
 
Clothing and footwear appropiate to the conditions should be worn, also bring a drink and picnic lunch unless otherwise stated.
The Club is not responsible for any walker's actions, or for any loss of, or damage to, property.
Programmes and other information are available from the Chairperson.
 
The meeting place for walks is usually Macclesfield Railway Station car park, where members (if they wish to do so) can car share for onward travel to the start point. Please check walk details for any specific meeting information for each walk. Some walkers may live closer to the start point and may wish to go direct to the start, in which case they should inform the walk leader.
