Sponsored Walk in aid of St. Luke's Hospice.

Location:  Around Disley.

The walk will start at Disley Railway Station (free parking) at 10.30 a.m. and two walks will be offered.

The main walk will be a 7.5 circular route around Disley and will be quite challenging with fantastic views.

The shorter walk will be more leisurely and will follow some of the paths and tracks around the reservoirs of Lyme Park for a distance of less than 5 miles.  Both walks will start simulaneously and go in different directions but later in the day we hope to all meet up in Lyme Park (weather permitting).  Otherwise we will end the day at the Rams Head in Disley.

Walkers should bring a drink and a packed lunch.

Sponsor forms are available from Denise Davies.    



Sunday,  13th October 2019   Leader:  Paul Everatt

Location:  Walk Mill, Waverton and Hargrave.  

This is a virtually flat circular walk of 7.5 miles along quiet country lanes, fields and the canal and avoiding main roads but passing through the villages of Waverton and Hargrave.  There are a nmber of stiles and gates but these should not be any problem.  Some of the fields may contain livestock so all dogs must be carefully controlled and on leads.  


Members should bring a dink and a packed lunch, but the walk will start and end at the Walk Mill where there is a cafe and toilets and where ground flour and bread is also sold.  


Meet at Walk Mill (off Guy Lane) Waverton, CH3 7BF at 10.30 where there is parking at the far end of the large car park.  



Sunday,  27th October 2019   Leaders:  John Beech and Evelyn Hewitt.

Location:  Kingsley.

This is a circular walk of about 6 miles from Kingsley.  Easy walking although could be muddy in places with several stiles and possibly some livestock in the fields.  Dogs are welcome.  Walkers should bring a packed lunch and a drink.

Location:  Goostrey.

This is a circular walk of about 6.5 miles around Goostrey following pahways and fields with three stiles and a little road walking.  Dogs are welcome.  Walkers should bring a packed lunch and a drink.
