Jeanette Shenton is leading our next walk at Marbury on Saturday 27th August, meet Audlem Car Park at 8.30 am – earlier than usual as it is a bank holiday and suspect walkers may have other commitments later in the day.

Walk Description
A 5 mile walk at Marbury, along the canal tow path to Willeymoor Lock, then joining Bishop Bennett Way, taking a steady incline up to Wirswall, the highest point in this part of Cheshire and from which there are great views across to the Sandstone Ridge Hills. We then pass Wickstead Hall, take a gentle descent across fields, around the Big Mere and back into Marbury.

Most stiles have an openable gate alongside and it is fairly dog friendly though there are usually sheep in the fields.

In spite of the dry summer it is as usual a little wet and boggy on the approach to the mere, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear

Start point
From Audlem take Whitchurch Road, right along Rookery Lane, cross A530 into Aston, carry on through past Bhurtpore pub, take Pinsley Green Road, left onto Wrenbury Road and into the village of Marbury.

Pass the Swan Inn (SY13 4 LS) on your right, turn right into Wirswall Road, then right into School Lane.

There should be space to park on the right outside the Village Hall a few hundred yards along School Lane.

NB All walkers must have suitable footwear and be prepared for adverse weather, carry food and water to last for the entire walk and be suitably fit for the various lengths of walk.

Each walk is led by a nominated leader who will carry some first-aid equipment. The leader has the right to refuse to include in a group anyone who is felt not be adequately equipped.

Non-members of Audlem Rambling Society (ARS) are welcome to come on a walk but are expected to join ARS and pay the membership fee after a trial walk or two.
