About the event
This is an exceptionally easy sunday stroll starting from an exceptionally good pub. Do make sure you pop in.
This route is pretty self explanatory as there are only a few places you can go. From the start point near The Ship Inn walk through Styal village and head towards Styal woods. Everything is well signed. Take the right hand track when you wander into the woods after coming out of the village. You'll take the left hand track back out again before turning right to head into and around Quarry Bank Mill. If you get lost it is easy to double back, but you shouldn't get lost!Key things to know:
Time: About 2 hours at an amble
Distance: 1.75 miles
Elevation: Nothing to speak of
How to get here:
Postcode: SK9 4JE. Park on the road nearby
Parking is difficult at busy times but make sure you don't just park anywhere. Park Wardens are about and you will get tickets (as well as annoy folk) so get there early.
