About

Macclesfield Riverside has a variety of habitats and is a great place to watch wildlife. You may see the herd of Longhorn cattle, an ancient and docile breed, which grazes the meadows to help preserve plant species diversity.

Exploring further afield:

If you are looking for a longer route, try the Bollin Valley Way or head to Macclesfield Forest and explore the range of walks, cycle rides and horse riding routes which are available to you.

Surface: The path leaving the rangers' office is made of compacted stone and has a width of between 1 and 2 metres. There is a slope of gradient 1:10 over a distance of 20 metres. In the central section of the park, the route is unsurfaced and follows a grass track. At the northern, Prestbury end, the path is 1 metre wide and uneven with steep gradients up to 1:6.

Path furniture: The route passes through a number of hand gates, kissing gates and bridges. The kissing gates are fitted with RADAR locks (at a height of 90 cm from the ground) for 2-way opening to offer a width of 1.2 metres. The minimum width on the bridges is 85 cm and there are steps of 25 cm onto one of the bridges.

The least accessible furniture is located at the Prestbury end of the park, so you may wish to return to the rangers' office when you reach the bridge over the River Bollin.
