About us

We are the Broken Cross Walkers, a group of Walkers, mainly from the Macclesfield area who enjoy getting out in the fresh air and having a good walk, we normally have a walk about every 2 or 3 weeks, mainly local and normally within 15-20 miles of Macclesfield. On most walks we usually take a warm drink and a snack and occasionally we may have a café or pub lunch if we all decide to treat ourselves on that particular day. Good idea to have walking boots, trainers or strong shoes and carry some waterproofs in case of rain. We don’t mind a bit of rain but we won’t walk if it is torrential. We usually walk around 5 to 7 miles. We have no membership fee and just a few common sense guidelines that can be found here and under the ' About us' heading at the top of the page. Everybody is welcome on our walks.

Ten of us set of on a rather overcast morning from the Teggs Nose Reservoir car park and followed the track beneath Teggs Nose to Clough House and then it was a steady climb up Hacked Way Lane to the forest. A coffee break by the ruined Dimples Farm gave us chance to catch our breath and then it was up the path through the forest to Forest Chapel. A walk along the lane brought us to Standing Stone and then into the forest and along the track to the ruined Ferriser Farm where we stopped for lunch. Afterwards we followed the track along the hillside to Nessit Hill which stands above the reservoirs with some great views across to Manchester and beyond. Our route then took us down to the lane and back into the forest where we joined the Gritstone Trail for the walk back to the start at the foot of Teggs Nose. Many thanks to our everyone for coming along. Our group consisted of Chris J, Alec, Wendy, Alan, Judith, Chris R, Sue V, Anne   M and David our leader.
