This pleasant walk takes in some less well known parts of Wilmslow and Alderley Edge. There are lots of horses along this route and some pleasant views of Alderley Edge and its big houses.
Walk from Moor Lane to Mobberley Golf Course passing through Nature Reserve.
This is a short walk around Lindow Moss. The area became famous when Lindow Man was discovered by peat cutters in August 1984. The footpath skirts the edge of Lindow Moss where peat is still extracted. There is a Lindow Moss website here and you can find information about Lindow Man here. This route keeps to the public footpaths, but there are many unofficial routes across the moss.
There are a few farms along the route, farm animals to see and a surprising number of wildflowers.
Beautiful walk from Fulshaw Cross to Alderley Golf Course.
Nice walk around Wilmslow and across the River Bollin.
Lindow Common is a very popular area and is well worth a visit in its own right. The common is crisscrossed by numerous footpaths and contains the Black Lake. It’s worthwhile exploring areas away from Black Lake where there are some small pools and expanses of heather. There is a lot of conservation work being carried out on the common which is designed to keep its open aspect and to protect wildlife and fauna. It is designated as a site of special scientific interest.
Lovely walk around the Wilmslow Golf Course from Chelford Road to Knutsford Road.
