This event is in the past.
A leisurely 7-mile (5-hour) walk around the historical mining area of Alderley Edge with pub dinner and Halloween party on the Edge. The walk is fairly flat (ascent 242m). Join in and be vegan for the day!
If you can't make it to the walk, feel free to join us for the dinner or the Halloween party on the edge!
Please let us know if you're coming for the dinner so that we have an idea of numbers.

For those travelling by train from Manchester, take the 11:04 train from Piccadilly Station, arriving 11:34 in Alderley Edge. If you're driving, you can park at the National Trust pay and display car park near The Wizard (SK10 4UB) and we'll pick you up from outside the pub at noon.
Starting from Alderley Edge railway station, picking up walkers from The Wizard, we walk through Dickens Wood to the sandy clearing of Stormy Point with magnificent views. We continue the walk through the woodland areas of Clock House Wood, Daniel Hill, Alder Wood and Hare Hill then joining Prestbury Road to head towards Finlow Hill. Following Bradford Lane we walk to the rustic 15th century Nether Alderley Mill. We'll head back to finish the walk at The Wizard (dog-friendly) where we will have vegan dinner.
Please, remember to check the weather and dress appropriately for walking. We recommend waterproof clothes and walking boots.
