Today’s walk leader is Rick.
This is a pleasant ,flat walk over some of the most beautiful countryside in Cheshire! From the Cock we meander through country lanes and flowery woods before we by-pass Budworth Mere with the chance of seeing some boats sailing on the lake. Eventually by crossing fields we hit upon the Trent and Mersey Canal and walk along to the Anderton Boat lift where refreshments can be purchased. After around a mile walk we leave the canal and trek through Marbury Park and eventually return back to the Cock along country paths and woods. The walk is about 5 miles but do wear stout shoes or boots as the pathways can be muddy, especially after a downpour.
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 !
