March Walk - Bridgewater Canal & Dunham Massey

We started this walk from The Axe & Cleaver in Dunham Town from where we were soon striding out along the Bridgewater Canal towards Lymm. The weather was grey with occasional rain showers which kept most people indoors and we had the towpath to our selves so were able to make good time on the first lap.

When we reached Agden Bridge we left the canal and tackled the next part of the walk which was across open fields to Little Bollington. The walking on this part of the route was more difficult with lots of styles to climb over, patches of mud and close encounters with sheep,cows and horses!

From Little Bollington we entered Dunham Massey Park and enjoyed a short stroll through parkland before joining the road back to Dunham Town.

In spite of persistent light rain we all thoroughly enjoyed this six mile ramble through the Cheshire countryside and ended the day with an excellent pub lunch at the Axe and Cleaver.
