Before the start, virtually all 25 of the walkers sported brollies. "Welcome to my Brolly Walk" said Jack. That stopped the rain, though one person didn't notice!

Easy walking along the Middlewood Way, apart from an encounter with an aggressively rapid mountain bike, led to single file through a damp field.
The plan was to cross the Macclesfield Canal, but an executive decision was made to shorten the walk (good decision as at the moment we finished the heavens opened) and walk along the towpath before crossing the golf course back to the Middlewood Way.
Here's our 6km route. A nice bit of fresh air, but hardly compensation for failing to be at Torridon preparing to walk across Scotland. Good luck to those who are there, or making their way there, and are elsewhere at the west coast starting points.
