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.
We followed the path
and down the edge
and out of the park.
Just as you exit the park there are some nice houses on the left.
It must be sheltered here as some of the plants are already in bloom.
There was a row of
and Flowering Cherry.
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
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!
