|Meeting||We meet on the first Thursday of each month, with a different person
leading each time.
This months walk will be led by Kate and Peter Marsham.
The walk starts from the free car park at the Chadkirk Country Park on the A627 between Marple and Romiley
(a few hundred yards further on from the Wyevale garden centre), on the right hand side of the road. Map ref. SJ 937896.
The walk takes us past St Chads Well onto the Peak Forest canal (fairly steep steps here) and then to the Marple Aqueduct.
We drop down here and go under the aqueduct and railway bridges to Lower Watermeetings Farm and eventually to the River Goyt as far as Compstall where we begin the return walk through Brabyn's Park, Marple and onto the canal taking us down the locks and back to Chadkirk.
The walk is about 5 miles, mostly flat, easy walking with a couple of styles and perhaps muddy in parts.
For those wanting lunch afterwards, there is the Spread Eagle just up the road towards Romiley on the right hand side which serves the usual pub grub/carvery meals.
We can take a show of hands at the beginning of the walk and let the pub know how many to expect.
