Brief Description

Starting from the car park near Disley station, we climb Jackson's Edge Rd. and then cross Disley Golf Course. Pass through a wooded area to reach the Peak Forest canal. After half a mile, drop down to the River Goyt. Climbing from there we cross Mellor and Towncliffe Golf Course and then climb to Mellor Moor and eventually reach Brookbottom (Pub!). If the weather is uncomfortably hot there is a lower route which we can take to reach Brookbottom, shortening the walk by perhaps half a mile and avoiding a further climb. From Brookbottom we take the Midshires Way to Strines and then back to the canal. A further 1mile+ takes us back to Disley.
