We took a short diversion to look at the point of confluence of the rivers Goyt and the Etherow before crossing the river at Compstall and continuing into Redbrow Wood. After heading across farmland we reached the steps leading up to the Marple Aquaduct which is 100ft above ground level.
Following the Canal, we passed the start of of Marple’s 16 locks and descended a path back to Brabyns Park. After the interesting walk the group adjourned to The Railway pub in Marple for lunch.
