This is the second of two volumes of circular walks which together take you round the whole 97 miles of the Cheshire Ring of canals. The walks in this book are up the eastern side of the Ring, along the Macclesfield, Peak Forest, Ashton and Rochdale canals, from Kidsgrove in the south to Castlefield, Manchester in the north. The walks are between 2? and 6? miles long. Each one follows the towpath for on average 2 miles, with a return section on a combination of paths, tracks and roads. The walks are not strenuous and are aimed at people who want to spend 2-3 hours exploring contrasting areas of Cheshire. In addition to giving clear directions for the walks, there is additional information about points of interest, local history, places to visit and pubs and cafes nearby.
