Middlewood Way

About

The Middlewood Way is a 16km (10 mile) linear country park following the former Macclesfield, Bollington and Marple Railway through picturesque Cheshire East countryside. It provides a relatively level route for all users along its wildlife corridor. At Bollington the route passes high above the river on a viaduct offering views to the hills and mills of the area.
