Description

(D/A) This walk starts at the end of the runway on Lady Lane. Follow the footpath around the bottom of the runway until reaching Wood Lane.

(1) Turn left and follow the lane for a short distance until reaching a footpath across fields on the left before Yarwood House. Cross some fields and Sugar Brook and continue on until reaching a track. Turn right and follow the track to Hobcroft Lane.

(2) Cross the road and turn left and then take the footpath almost immediately on the right after the cottage. Follow the footpath until Valewood Farm. Turn left just before the Valewood Farm and continue to Dairy Farm.

(3) After Dairy Farm turn right into Church Lane towards the small and picturesque hamlet of Mobberley. Admire the Church and village pub. Take the footpath across fields behind the school and turn left just before Mobberley Hall Farm.

(4) Follow the footpath to Davenport Lane and turn right. After a short distance, and after crossing a small bridge, turn left into the driveway of Old Bridge House. This looks just like an ordinary driveway into a house and you may not believe it is the footpath, but it is the route of the path and the stile is by the side of the garage on the right. Exit on the right by the side of the garage and continue towards Greenoaks Farm.

(5) Turn left just before Greenoaks Farm and then right across some long, narrow fields.

(6) Turn left when reaching the footpath around the airport and back to the start of the walk.(D/A)
