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.

Seven of us set off on a damp morning from Taxal Layby, we followed the track up to Shallcross Hall Farm and then down the road to cross by the foundry along to Cadster House. From there we crossed Chapel Road and continued along to skirt Throstledale and had coffee and cupcakes (courtesy of Andy) by Roosdyche.  Next we headed to Buxworth Basin for lunch by the canal and then walked along  to Bridgemont where we crossed the A6 to pass through fields to head back by Stoneheads. Crossing Whaley Lane we turned into Start Lane to return via Toddbrook and Taxal.                                       

 Many thanks to Wendy, Andy, Kati, Sheila, Judith and Alan for joining me on this walk. And also thanks to Sue Vernon who led the walk.
