Six Day Walk (6):
Peak Forest Canal

This is the sixth post of some photographs of a walk I took some weeks ago. I've been sharing this walk with you over six days.

We started by walking down steps to Church Brow and took the path by Gower Bank which leads to the junction of Clough Fold Road and Fawley Avenue.

We then followed a footpath between fences, before entering a valley crossed by a pipeline and finding a bridge with a stile.

The reason for the barrier and the stile is that it leads to grazing land by the Peak Forest Canal. It wasn't until I'd climbed the stile and turned the corner that I knew where I was.

We have been here before but then the path led across a muddy field so I didn't go exploring it.

On that occasion I'd walked down Woodend Lane as far as Captain Clarke's Bridge and along the towpath to Bridge #8.

On this occasion I crossed the bridge as narrowboat Edith passed through. I then walked on down the towpath to the site of Gee Cross Mill.

There is another photograph of the grazing field on Hyde DP Xtra.

Breathing must have been just a joy, surrounded by that much green. Please have a nice start into the new week.

The countryside on this tour has been idyllic. Much different than what I see on a daily basis. Most enjoyable!

The whole walk has a Wuthering Heights feel to it, though the weather has been much more pleasant ;-)
