A circular walk taking us along the track  passing Astle Farm and then along Snape Brook and through Siddington, we will walk around Redesmere and then after passing Capesthorne Hall we will head back across the fields to our start point at the layby on the A537 near Monks Heath.

Sunday 4th March  Astbury Mere Country Park    

This easy circular route has been planned to avoid walking through boggy fields and deep mud.  However some of the paths are likely to be a bit muddy here and there.  From the Mere we will walk eastwards to reach Lamberts Lane that leads us to the canal towpath.  From the canal we will join the Biddulph Valley Way, leaving it at Tommy's Brook to make our way across the A54, then a little road walking will take us to the River Dane.  We will return alongside the river, through Congleton Park and along the River Dane Walkway through the town.
