Wednesday 5 August 2015 – An Evening Walk with SWOG from Nelson Pit

0505nrElmerhurst

A mottley crew of about thirty assembled outside Nelson Pit Visitor Centre for a 7.30 pm start.

Up by Windgather there was rain in the air. “What are you lot up to?” mooed the lady on the right.

One rickety stile; thirty people.

The leaders ploughed on through wet grass towards Disley.

Back at the Macclesfield Canal, we found a tractor festival.

By now the light was a little on the low side.

But we soldiered on bravely and reached the Boars Head before it went dark.

Here's our route - about 7 km with 100 metres ascent. Allow a good 1.5 hours.

There’s a very short slideshow here.

We did another walk from here on 30 July 2014. It’s a good place to start from.
