Over recent days, Audlem Online has been re-publishing a series of local walks as, weather permitting, this is an ideal time of year for local exploration. Today, we look at a popular short circuits of just over a mile, with wonderful views of Moss Hall. The walk can be used in conjunction with the Audlem Parish Paths map or OS Explorer 257.
Moss Hall and the Canal
A 30 minute walk with fine views of Moss Hall, a Jacobean mansion.
From the Square, head north up Cheshire Street, past the Car Park and cemetery to a lane on the left, with a sign to Moss Hall. Descend the lane to a stile on the left and a footpath which follows the fence and hedge before crossing the large field with views of Moss Hall. Cross a stile and, going straight ahead, climb up a smaller field to a stile which leads down to the Shropshire Union canal.
You can explore the attractive area around Lock 15 before turning back up the canal towpath past many moored narrow boats to return to the village past more locks and the Shroppie Fly and Bridge pubs. At the road, turn left to return to the Square.
