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.

Nine of us set off from Knutsford and followed the route from the car park to Dogs Wood and then onto the Memorial and Wartime Paratroop training ground passing through the middle of two herds of deer, which were amazing.    From the Memorial we walked down to the main courtyard area for lunch.  After lunch we headed back past the house, the Ice House and back to the main entrance and back into Knutsford. The walk was led by Judith and the rest of the group were Chris, Maureen, Derek, Wendy, Trevor, Una, Irene and Sue.

Many thanks to Judith for leading this walk for us which was actually the 200th walk we have done since we started in October 2010.
