Starting from Bollington near Macclesfield, this is a walk of varying contrast from peaceful countryside and canal to high moorland with extensive views. Rising out of the town on country paths and lanes, open moorland is reached and a steady walk up to Sponds Hill at over 1,300ft gives views all round. These include across Manchester, Cheshire, the Peak District and beyond. From here it is a steady walk down to pick up the Macclesfield Canal near Pott Shrigley and back to Bollington. It is an exhilarating walk of distinct variety for all to enjoy.
