588m of ascent. 14.5km

A winter's walk in the new year, taking in the views to the West over Macclesfield and Cheshire, and to the East of the Peak District.  There are a few climbs on the route, but we have plenty of time to take these at an easier pace.

We start by heading through the woods and up to Lud's Church, an old meeting place for outlawed religions. This great chasm is not one to be missed.

From here we emerge out of the forest on the the Roaches, a long ridge on the edge of the Peak District. Over five clouds and on to Hen Cloud, a distinctive small peak which marks our turning point.

We head back a slightly different route, finishing after 14.5km (588m of ascent).

Meeting at 9.45 for a 10am start. Should take around 5 hours with breaks and photo opportunities!

Pub after for a well deserved drink!
