A walk over Alderley Edge

We met in the National Trust car park by the Wizard on Alderley Edge.

We set off along the edge, heading for Alderley Edge.

There was no sign of budding on the trees here

You got a good view over the Cheshire Plain, even on a cloudy day like this.

004

We followed the path

down

and down the edge

and out of the park.

Just as you exit the park there are some nice houses on the left.

013

It must be sheltered here as some of the plants are already in bloom.

014

There was a row of

015

Magnolia

016

and Flowering Cherry.

017

We crossed the main road and headed down a small road passing the fish and chip shop on our right. We eventually turned left in front of a tomato farm.

There were row after row of green houses. Later I was to learn this farm supplies Waitrose and many other supermarkets.

The lambs were friendly around here

as we made our way up to Nether Alderley church.

We took our break in the church yard

The church looked splendid up close.

We made our way back passing picturesque cottages

041

and along the road passing Nether Alderley Mill

which displayed its opening times.

Before taking the long path back up the edge

and last but not least, seeing the alpaca’s which lived there!
