A relatively flat Walk, about 14KM with 150m ascent. Mainly good paths, but expect a few muddy sections

A leisurely walk from Styal, home to Quarry Bank Mill, a National Trust site and one of Britains greatest industrial heritage sites.

After walking pass the the Mill, we will head out along the River Bollin Valley towards Mobberley until we meet the airport perimeter. We then continue along a mixture of footpaths and quiet roads along the Southside of the 2nd runway to the end of the runway before crossing to return along the north side of the second runway. 

To get back across the runway we will pass under via the River Bollington Tunnel.

Unfortunately the walk will be frequently disturbed by aircraft noise, but some sections of the walk will offer opportunities to view aircraft at close quarters assuming the 2nd runway is in use.

There should be the opportunity to visit a pub at the end of the walk for anyone who wishes.
