Colin & Cliff 

This is a pleasant amble through the countryside of mid-Cheshire where walkers can enjoy the wildlife and riparian splendour of the canalised River Weaver.  The walk follows the northern bank of the river to Dutton Locks then switches to the southern bank. Eventually we make a steady but gentle climb to the village of Acton Bridge by passing along quiet country lanes and over grassy fields. We then follow another quiet lane to return to our starting point. 
The walk is approximately 5.5 miles. 
We will have our first refreshment stop after 2 miles. Please bring something to sit on as we intend stopping on a grassy bank alongside the river. We will have a second stop after another 2 miles. 
Walkers will have the opportunity at the end of the walk to take further refreshment at the Leigh Arms, where there is an attractive outside seating area.
Starting point and time
The walk will begin at 12:30. 
The starting point is the Leigh Arms public house on The A49. The postcode is CW8 4QT. Please park on the grass verges near the pub as the carpark is for patrons only. 
Directions to start
From Manchester, take the M56 to junction 10. Leave the motorway at that junction and join the A49.

Changes and cancellation
In the event that there are any changes to the regulations (for example a further lockdown) before the walk, which means that it will not be able to proceed, an email will be sent to everyone booked on the walk. Very occasionally, due to severe weather or another serious event, a walk may be cancelled. In these instances, a note will be added to the website at least TWO hours before Start Time. So, do check the website before you set out, and if in doubt use the walk leader’s mobile contact number.
If you need to cancel contact general@outonsunday.co.uk. If it’s on the day please call the Walk Leader instead.
At the time of publication restrictions were being revised, but for now, until we have confirmation of the changes …………..
Remember that social distancing applies throughout the walk, and bring face covering and hand sanitiser, just in case. If you are car-sharing or using public transport, follow the relevant rules and guidance.
