This event is no longer available.

A walk of two contrasting halves starting in a quiet valley nestled between The Cloud and the Macclesfield Canal. We start by gradually ascending ‘The Cloud’ (a prominent hill with gritstone ramparts) for a well-earned refreshment break on the top from where we can admire the panoramic views over Cheshire and the Peak District. We then descend through moorland and pasture to the Macclesfield Canal, admiring aqueducts and viaducts along the way. The canal provides easy walking to circle our way back to a point from which we can traverse fields and a quiet lane back to the cars. We will stop to have a picnic en route, so please bring sandwiches, and, as ever, please bring your walking boots.  

Facilities: The toilets at the car park unfortunately are going to be closed for the foreseeable future. The nearest toilets are at 1) Brereton Heath Park (CW12 4SU), 6 miles away, midway between Holmes Chapel and Congleton and 2) Astbury Mere Country Park (CW12 4FR), 3 miles away, in Congleton.

A lovely group recently returned from a glorious ski trip to Sestriere in Italy. We arrived with some trepidation as there had been no fresh snow for a month however on arrival it was obvious that the resort was proficient with its piste management and the runs were wonderful. We were lucky enough to get some fresh snowfall during our stay too which added to the trip. Many people ski with Spice to be part of the fabulous group feel of our trips and come back again and again - we always make sure that no-one skis alone (unless they specifically want to) and are included within the various levels of ski groups. This was proved by us inviting our 2020 attendees to join us for our 2021 trip to Champoluc in the Monterosa Ski area again in Italy with an 85% take up already! There are still a few places left if you think you might like to join us!
