By this time it was 'Coffee Time' and we found a suitable bench where we could sit and enjoy the views across Cheshire and out to the Dee Estuary. Well rested we then made the descent across open fields to join the towpath along the Macclesfield Canal. Leaving at Bollington we enjoyed a pleasant stroll through the local park and back to our start point.
After our morning exertions we then adjourned to the Vale Inn where we all enjoyed an excellent lunch.
