On a sunny day exploring the walks along the Maccelsfield canals is a fun way to see the sights. One of the last narrow canals systems built, it was initially built to transport coal and officially opened in 1831. Along the walk you might encounter people walking dogs, swans and the residents of the canal narrow boats. It is accessible and well marked which makes for an easy stroll and is child friendly, even good for a baby stroller. It can get muddy so I would not suggest wearing your best shoes. There is a lovely pub called the Puss In Boots which makes for an ideal spot to have a tea or pint while exploring the canals of Maccelsfield.
