Lancaster Canal

The partially restored Lancaster follows an interesting route into the Lake District & passes close to the sea as it provides excellent views of the Cumbrian hills.

Peak Forest

Enjoy the Peak District scenery

A very scenic walk which skirts the Peak District national park taking you into the heart of the Derbyshire hills.

The walk follows a horsehoe route from the Cheshire market town of Congleton to the Derbyshire town of Whaley Bridge.  Throughout its length it skirts the Peak District national park providing excellent views of its hill scenery.

From Congleton the route follows the Macclesfield canal north past the prominent hill known as the Cloud before skirting Macclesfield and then passing through the former mill town of Bollington on a massive embankment.

At Marple the canal meets the Peak Forest canal where your route heads into the Derbyshire hills.  The route terminates at Whaley Bridge offering the chance to visit Bugsworth basin now restored and once the UK's busiest inland port.
