Walk Shrigley 03/12/2017

Cary led a walk from Bollington to Pott Shrigley return.

We dropped onto the Macclesfield Canal S until the Vale pub Bollington then return . A misty and drizzly day in the morning clearing to give views later on. Some members went to the Windmill pub/meal at Whiteley Green after the walk.  10 miles 10 members.

Thankfully this friendly bull was stuck in the adjacent field

Beware of warthogs and gorrillas
