Starting from the Macclesfield beauty spot,walkers had a choice of routes according to experience andfitness.

All the walkers arrived back at Tegg’sNose around 2pm where Sunny the Dog was again showing hisappreciation for every hiker’s efforts.

All the walkersenjoyed their picnic while watching live entertainment by TheSinger Takes It All contestant Will Connor.”
