Sunday Lunch and Afternoon Walk, Rushton Spencer to Bosley Cloud

Lunch/drinks from 12.00 Walk 13.30. The venue this week is the Knot Inn, Station Lane, Rushton Spencer, Macclesfield, SK11 0QU, and the walk is about 5¾ miles to Bosley Cloud, with a climb of around 600 ft.(184m), although this includes an optional ascent of the Cloud which is about 250 ft. (75m).

Directions : Take the A523 south from Macclesfield, and in Rushton (Spencer) turn right at the crossroads into Station Lane. The pub is about 200 yards on the left, with a large car park at the rear. There is also a small free public car park down the rough track off Station Lane on the left straight after the pub.

Note : This is a different pub from the one in Rushton which we have been using recently.

Public Transport : There appears to be none on a Sunday.

Every Sunday throughout the year, Manchester IVC has a walk which starts off at 1.30 pm prompt, and is usually 4-5 miles …. something like that. We meet at a local pub or restaurant and the walk will either start from there or somewhere nearby. As well as the walk itself, there is the option to meet for a meal or a drink before the walk and/or after the walk for those who wish. You will be able to see from the location and the walk description whether or not the walk is going to be suitable for you – but the idea is that all on the walk will benefit from enjoyable exercise and a good social.

Please make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain – the walk leader will always have the right to decide on the day if someone is not appropriately dressed. The walk leaders are all members of the club and are volunteers.

There are car share options available, so if you are stuck for a lift, just add a note here and we’ll do our level best to help.

There are usually between 10 to 20 walkers dependent on the weather and location – so by all means come along and join in. It’s a great gateway to the rest of the club, you can talk to new and established members and find out about the full range of events we have on in Manchester every month.

The walks are very popular, so please RSVP if you plan to attend and we’ll make sure you’re made to feel very welcome !
