The walk starts from the entrance to Gawsworth Hall which is well worth a visit on your return. It soon crosses meadow land with views of the Peak District. After a short road section the Macclesfield Canal is reached where refreshments can be had at the Fools Nook public house.
The route now follows the canal for approx. 2 miles until a lock is reached. Here you can pause to watch the boats going through the lock before continuing on a very short road section , then taking to the countryside again to North Rode.
After passing through a farmyard the route continues back to Gawsworth across several fields passing a delightful fishing lake.
