Free guided walk to Harecastle Tunnel

Address

Red Bull Wharf,
Congleton Road South,
ST7 3AP
(opposite the Red Bull pub)

23 Mar 2014
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us and explore the Trent & Mersey and Macclesfield canals with Andrew Watts from Etruria Boat Group.

We will walk from Red Bull Wharf along the Trent & Mersey Canal to the entrance of Harecastle Tunnel, and return via the Macclesfield Canal. This is a walk into a past age when the canal was busy with cargo, horses, and boats.

The walk is leisurely and suitable for anyone able to cope with walking the distance of about two miles (3 km). It will last about 90 minutes and finishes with tea and cake at the new Welcome Station at Red Bull Wharf.
