Title: recommend a 3hr walk
Post by: Lisa Oldham on August 08, 2012, 01:13:27 PM
Ive got a friend coming on Saturday with no knowledge of the area at all.  I have to work early evening so as hes a keen walker I was thinking of sending him for a local walk! Has to be about 3 hours long from Ringers ish.  Any recommendations and maps for him to follow?

I would suggest combining walk nos 2 and 3 here: www.marple-uk.com/walks

Start at the Ringers and follow walk 3 then at Marple Bridge go down Low Lea Road, joining up with walk 2 at Lakes Road. Will show the best that Marple has to offer with the locks, aqueduct, Brabyns Park, Roman Lakes, Roman Bridge etc. canal back to Ringers.........

Not forgetting that having walked along Low Lea Road you will be able to view the excavations at Oldknow's Bottoms Mill just before you join Lakes Road.
Well worth a visit in its own right.
