Middlewood Way

We just about have everything ready for Europe now with just a few more bits to collect and sort out before we get on our way!

Elaine had one last appointment in Manchester today so we made a quick trip up there, whilst Elaine's dad, Burt dog sat for us.  As a bonus he made us a very nice Salmon dinner when we got back to Macclesfield!

We had to pick up a couple of parcels from the Post Office, then it was back to the motorhome.

As it was such a nice evening we took the dogs for a walk along the Middlewood Way.  It follows the old railway line between Marple and Macclesfield and is 10 miles long ...

The route is shared by walkers, cyclists and horse riders ...

The old platform at Higher Poynton is still there, and to the left of the pic up the ramp is the dog friendly Boars Head pub, so we had to pop in for one ...

The Middlewood Way was opened by David Bellamy, you can still see the spittle stains!
(Grapple me Grapenuts) ...

We will pick up the push bikes from Trevor's house soon and take them for a blast along the Middlewood Way - what a great bike riding track!

We walked back to the van along the tow path, to get our boat fix.

Hello Mr Heron ...

It was a lovely calm evening at Higher Poynton ...

Then it was back 'home' to the motorhome ... one more stationary week and she will be on her way to adventures in Europe!

  2. Hi Both, it doesn’t look like you’ll have time to get down here to collect the alarm that Kev and Ann (RnR) has left for you and unfortunately we’re unable to get to you before you’re heading off in the wild blue yonder of Europe, so would you like me to post them to you somewhere? If you don’t want to publish this - leave me a message on my blog or send a text with an address and we’ll sort it. Hope Elaine is all sorted now health wise, regards to you both. xx

  3. Hi Carol, We can swing by your place next Thursday, I would like to have a look at the boat if possible, would 11.00-12.00 be ok?

    1. Fantastic, give us a ring for directions when you’re on the way, can meet you either at the marina/caravan or the boat builders - see you then!
