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.

Five hardy walkers braved the elements as we set off from Higher Hurdsfield in the rain, we headed up Cliff Lane and avoided the muddy hillside further up the lane the rain eased off and we climbed up through the wood with several inches of snow on the ground, glimpses of blue sky and the sun gave us hope as we followed the Gritstone Trail across the fields to Teggs Nose Cafe. It was too early for lunch but the warm fire and smell of hot coffee proved too much. After our break we followed the track through the quarry with some great views across the hills. A steep descent down the snowy hillside into Langley needed caution but we were soon down onto level ground and through the village. After lunch in the Churchyard we passed Langley Hall and took the field path up and over the Hollins, once again we had some great views over Macclesfield and the Cheshire Plain. After passing the Golf Course we joined the canal and followed this back to Hursdfield Road and then up the road and back to the car park. A great walk which started out in rainy weather and then improved considerably as the day wore on. many thanks to Kati, John D, Sheila and Diana for joining me on this seven mile walk.
