Visit the spectacular bluebell wood and nature reserve at Etherow Country Park as we follow a walk in and around the town of Marple on the outskirts of Greater Manchester. In addition to the colourful display in the country park we will visit a variety of points of interest, including the flight of sixteen locks and an aqueduct along the Peak Forest canal and the Mellor archaeological site which includes a replica of an iron-age roundhouse.
