About the event


This is one of the 20 stages of the GM Ringway – the new walking trail for Greater Manchester. Stage 4 continues the walk along the Ladybrook Valley, bringing us decisively from the suburbs into the countryside. Much of the stage overlaps with the Ladybrook Valley Interest Trail.The map also shows two possible diversions. The first visits Poynton village, where cafes, pubs and other facilities can be found. The second, east of Poynton, avoids the undulating and slippery paths in Norbury Hollow. From Poynton Pool onwards, this diversion uses the Prince’s incline – the route of an old colliery railway track – and the totally level Middlewood Way. These offer easier but still attractive walking.Note that parts of the trail may be damp, muddy and slippery at any time of year and especially after periods of wet weather. Please bear this in mind when planning your trip.

Map and directions This walk is available on the user-friendly Go Jauntly walking app. Here, photographs and written directions will enable you to follow the route on your phone. You can also download a printable PDF of the directions from the same link.Alternatively, you can follow the route (without written directions) on the mobile-friendly Plotaroute app. To use Plotaroute on your phone’s browser, simply click the map. Then, when you’re ready to start walking, click the tracker icon (bottom right) to show your position as you follow the route.We recommend carrying an additional power source and/or map when following online routes on your phone. For any challenging routes, we would recommend that you also have access to and know how to read an Ordnance Survey map.

Begin this stage at Bramhall station (with limited step-free access) served by trains from Manchester and Stockport. Buses also stop nearby.
