Walk is about 18KM with 250m of ascent, Mainly good paths.

Join us for a leisurely 11 mile walk along sections of the Macclesfield and Peak Forest Canals and a visit to Lyme Park. 

We start with a small climb up Marple Locks, and once at the top lock will follow the Macclesfield Canal to Higher Poynton. We leave the Canal here and follow footpaths before entering Lyme Park, a 1,400 acre estate that once belonged to the Legh family and is now managed by the National Trust. 

As we walk through the park, look out for the red deer that roam the estate as well as the elegant Regency house and the Cage, a folly which we can visit offering fine views over Cheshire.

After walking through the park, we'll head down through Disley to join the Peak Forest Canal, and enjoy views of the hills of the High Peak District as we head back to the Marple Lock Flight.
