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.

Fourteen of us set off from the layby on the A537 and using field paths and tracks we passed Mere Farm and Heawood Hall and then it was over the bypass and into the grounds of Nether Alderley Church where we stopped for a coffee break. As we finished our break the Church Warden Michael kindly offered to show us the may interesting features of the beautiful Church which dates from the 14 century including the Stanley Pews. Afterwards we took the path away from the Church and crossed the bypass again and followed Sossmoss Lane to the junction and then across the road and back onto the field paths and tracks which took us past the David Lewis Centre where we stopped for lunch. Afterwards a path blocked for safety reasons gave us a problem but with a bit of ingenuity and caution we managed to get round the problem, then it was down the track and into Chelford Village, another path took us over Chelford Heath and then after passing Chelford Church a field path and track brought us back to the start. Many thanks to Christine John D, Wendy, Judith, Marlene, Irene, Eileen, Chris J, Alec, Dave I, Shirley, Kati, and Sue P for joining me on this walk.
