Marple & Mellor Cross

Marple – Mellor Cross – Strines – Marple

Welcome to Freshwalks and our first Classic Ramble event of 2023. Our plan is to start the day in Marple, Cheshire and head gently uphill towards the summit of Mellor Cross before dropping into the tiny hamlet of Brookbottom for a pub lunch at the Fox Inn.

After lunch, we’ll head down the Midshires Way to Strines (an early return train is possible here) before walking back to Marple along the Peak Forest Canal.

Walkers coming from Manchester┬ácan take the 09:48 train from Manchester Piccadilly to arrive in Marple at 10:09. We also invite walkers to join us for a coffee or some breakfast at Carluccio’s (upstairs inside the station) from 09:00.
