June 30th \ July 1st 2011 a walk up white Nancy

At around 09:30 we set off to make our way back to Bollington. We had only been on the move for around 15 minutes and it started to rain but not heavy. Arriving at Marple Junction we turned off the Peak Forest and back onto the Trent and Mersey canal, stopping for water and loo emptying at the British Waterways station. It was an enjoyable trip back through High Lane and Higher Poynton with the rain stopping and the sun beginning to shine. Stopping for lunch on route we had crayfish tail sandwiches, lovely they were too. We arrived back in Bollington around 16:30 and moored near the impresive Clarence Mill. The evening was spent walking round the town, tomorrow we would tackle White Nancy.

After a leisurely start we set off to walk up to White Nancy, it was very pleasant with stunning scenery looking over open countryside and cities and towns. After reaching the top we carried on and walked the ridge to Kerridge Hill, from there we followed the paths back down eventually meeting the canal towpath at bridge 28 and then along the canal and back to Shell Bell.  After lunch we walked into the town to post letters.

We had planned to meet Sue again and since she was working  late we decided to have a meal at The Vale and see her there. An enjoyable evening was had with great food and beer the Vale is to be recommended
