We walk from Astbury Mere car park through Astbury and across fields and woodlands on a gradual ascent to Mow Cop, where we'll stop for lunch and a look around. We'll then head back to Astbury Mere via Macclesfield Canal. Dogs welcome, though there are many stiles on the walk and the odd farm animal, so dogs will need to be kept on leads at times. Parts of the walk may be muddy and boggy, so gaters may be required. oh and keep a look out for low flying balls as we cross Astbury Golf Course Lunch required.
