Middlewood Way to Marple

The Middlewood Way is a ten mile trail that runs from Macclesfield to Marple. Originally a railway line, The Marple, Bollington and Macclesfield Railway opened for business in 1869 but closed a hundred years later having never been very profitable. It re-opened as a recreational trail in 1985 and this morning Joe and I plus the two dogs walked the stretch from High Poynton into Marple and returned to Caxton via the towpath, after coffee and teacake al fresco in Marple of course.
