A fantastic walk really enjoyed it. We had great weather, highlights were the excellent views East towards Wildboarclough and the Roaches and from Bosley Cloud, excellent views over Cheshire all the way to the Manchester skyline. The Bridestones Neolithic Burial chamber wasn't anything to write home about, but interesting nonetheless. Of note the free car park at the start is quite small and was almost full when we got there. There is possible road parking in the village or free parking at the north end of Rudyard Lake. You could then walk north along the old railway track (public path - The Staffordshire Way) to pick up the walk route just before Rushton Spencer. Underfoot, the route was fairly good although a bit muddy along the Goit Canal section. Overall a fantastic walk and would definitely recommend.
