Walk description
A moderate 5 mile walk with one fairly steep ascent of approximately a quarter of a mile and a fairly steep descent for a few hundred yards.
The walk is across fields and farm land where there could be livestock. So if you bring a dog please keep it on the lead. We also go through a small areas of trees called Waulkmill Wood.There are a few stiles and kissing gates to pass through.
We begin the walk from Bollington through farmland and then we leave the farmland through the wood and walk along the road at Tower Hill past the Rising Sun Inn until we enter the fields again, after climbing over a high stile.
This is where we start our ascent through trees up Kerridge Hill on a rocky but well marked track.
When we reach the top we enter the Gritstone Trail where we walk along the ridge.  There are some wonderful stunning views of the area along the path until we reach White Nancy (a monument that was built in 1820 to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo) where we will stop for lunch.
After lunch we begin our fairly steep descent through two fields until we reach Bollington again.
We can see what the consensus is as far a going for a drink is concerned at the end of the walk.
Please wear boots or sturdy footwear. The descent is fairly steep and is likely to be slippy especially if it has been raining.
Please bring drinks and sandwiches as there will be no shops or cafes after we leave Bollington.
It would be a good idea to bring a picnic blanket or rug to sit on in case it is wet.

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.
