Gurnett, Macclesfield

On Wednesday the weather was still warm and sunny and we retraced our steps back to Marple before turning down the Macclesfield Canal towards Kidsgrove.

The journey through Higher Poyton, and Bollington was delightful. We paused for lunch near Poyton but we would have liked to spend more time exploring the area.

We moored up just outside Macclesfield at Gurnett Aqueduct. The visitor moorings were busy but we got a prime spot. We walked around the village and found residents putting up bunting for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
