A trip up the Nab

On a lovely sunny morning we at the top of Holehouse Lane, Whiteley Green for a walk up the Nab.

We headed off across the canal bridge.

003

The canal looked really quiet in both directions.

004

We passed a cottage which was being renovated. They were replacing the old yorkshire stone roof with an Indian stone roof.

005

Setting off across the farm land we passed the remains of an old farm vehicle

006

someone had left a sketch of what it had once looked like.

007

We headed down into Bollington.

008

Bollington really has great views

011

which get even better as you go up the Nab.

012

At the top we took our break

013

with brilliant views

014

in every directions.

019

On the Nab there is a trig point.

022

We headed back the way we had come. Passing the house of the ‘grumpy’ self appointed guardian of the path. A path which some people tried to close.

026

The fine weather had made the Sun Flowers ‘happy’

028

They positively grinned

029

and the contrasting foliage stood out

030

We headed up one of Bollington’s many paths

031

and down past some sluice gates

032

and its pond behind

033

and then past the Viceroy Restaurant – which is up for sale.

034

We looked back across Bollington to the Nab where we had been.

036

Before passing a house decked in Virginia Creeper

039

before heading back to the canal for the last leg of our walk.

041

The canal ran over the road.

042

A Buddleia plant was covered in Butterflies.

050

with Small Tortoiseshells

059 - 860p

and Red Admirals in abundance

053 - 860p

All worth extra looks!

057
063
051 - 860p

Dragging myself away from the butterflies we walked past the Clarence Mill

064

and then past our friendly Heron

073 - 860b

who is even undisturbed by passing traffic!

070

After the finish of the walk we decided to try the food at the Windmill pub.

074

They look set to have a good October.
