D Walk – Houghton Dale
26/09/2021 @ 9:45 am
Meeting at Denton Cemetery, Cemetery Rd.
Postcode M34 6FS
Meeting at 9:45 for a 10am start.
Approx 4.5 miles
From Morrison’s at Bredbury and The Travellers Call pub on the A560 traffic lights, turn right if you are coming from Marple and Bredbury, or left if you are coming up from the centre of Stockport on the B6104. Head towards the big roundabout and take the 2nd exit onto Ashton Road going underneath the bridge, then pass Robinson-Unicorn brewery on your right, and Screwfix and Allied Bakery on your left. You will then pass the Arden Arms pub as you drive into the dip. From there take the 1st right turn, Wakeling Rd, drive straight to the top and turn right and the cemetery is directly in front of you.
This is an easy walk going down through Hardy Wood and onto the river towpath and up to Marple canal. Then turn down just after Unity Mills and back onto the river towpath. There is one short climb at the end with steps back up to the cemetery.
