Cowm Edge - Saturday 12th April 2014

Again a very good turnout of members and nine of us set out from Rowarth for a walk of about 5 miles along Cowm Edge. Immediately we left Rowarth we were soon climbing the steep path  onto the moors behind the village and the walk along the ‘Edge’.  As you make the ascent the views across Cheshire are quite stunning and give you a good excuse to stop, gather your breath, and admire the scenery.

Once at the top the walk continues across open moorland until you reach Cowm Edge, a quite spectacular horse shoe shaped outcrop from which you have extensive views across Lancashire. The route then continues along the top for about a mile before turning to cross the moorland and the descent back to the valley below.

At the foot of the valley the path follows a river and on the banks we were able to see a fine collection of spring flowers and marsh plants. A good walk which has a very lot to offer – exercise, fine views, moors and fields all with plenty of wildlife. Many thanks to Beryl and Brenda for leading and organising this outing to Cowm Edge.
