I am always cautious about walks that involve "crossing several fields". Often you find the surface of them churned up by the animals using them so that they are above the "normal" level of muddiness that you expect on public footpaths. This walk is a case in point. It would help if the author gave a better indication of the direction to follow and whether you were aiming to arrive at a stile or a "kissing gate" which were often over the visible horizon. It would also help to have noted in points (2) and (3) that you are following waymarkers connected to the "NCW"(the North Cheshire Way) which are sometimes nailed to tree trunks rather than on posts.
It is also worth noting that Lumb Farm has a loud barking dog that could be intimidating as the public footpath seems to go through the property and not around it.
This circular walk crosses greenbelt land at Handforth Dean which may soon be built on. This is a great shame as this area is pretty unspoiled.
This walk starts from Wilmslow Park and follow River Bollin to Handforth.
This is a lovely walk up a gentle incline to Styperson Pool and above to Long Lane. There are good views towards Alderley Edge and Bollington.
Lovely parts of the walk are with swathes of Bluebells along the steep banks down to the River Bollin in Spring.
A very pleasant walk at any time of the year, but particularly good in spring when the bluebells are out. This walk is a little steep up towards Clock House Woods. There are lovely views all along the route, beautiful woodlands and a small Lake as you enter the grounds of Hare Hill. Hare Hill has a colorful display of Rhododendrons in Spring and the walled gardens are well worth a visit. Hare Hill is a National Trust Property.
A route that takes in the delights of the countryside surrounding Lyme Park
Nice walk around Wilmslow and across the River Bollin.
This interesting walk through Pownall Park takes in Carnival Fields and St. Olaf's Chapel which was built by the Boddington Family. Sadly, it is now just a ruin. Some of this route follows public footpaths through the Pownall Park area which are now are pretty much back alleys through the area.
