A Dog walk from New Mills to Lyme Park Disley then back again!
This is a dog walk that we really love; I mostly do it in the summer months, when the weather is dry and mild. This walk once took us 6 hours as we spent so long walking around Lyme Park.
A very scenic dog walk, that takes on the counties Derbyshire and Cheshire East. The walk begins in semi rural/ industrial New Mills, and you eventually end up in the stunning Lyme Park Estate walking through some of the most scenic countryside that surrounds Disley Cheshire East.
I Begin this dog walk on The Peak Forest Canal at New Mills Wharf heading right along the Peak Forest Canal, past Swizzles factory and towards Marple Stockport and Disley.
As you head along the canal for about 15 minutes, The very first stone bridge you get to is Lower Grenshall Lane, follow this lane up to the A6 just at the back off the Purple Pakora Restaurant. Be very cautious when crossing the A6 here, as it’s a busy road especially with your dogs as there are no pedestrian crossings.
After crossing the A6 You then head up the continuation of Grenshall Lane, there is a footpath to the right that follows the lane to the top with a scenic brook on the right of the path.
Once the footpath ends back onto the lane, head up the lane and you will see an old house being renovated, on the right before the house there is a lane to the right. There are no signs to say this is a bridal way or a path, but follow this lane up and eventually you will get to the seven springs campsite in Disley and onto Corks Lane. Carry on up the lane and to the left is Corks field follow this footpath through the field to the Buxton old road.
Turn right onto Buxton Old Road and walk a few yards down, on the opposite side if the road is a row of cottages and a footpath sign, the cottage you pass his called Muslin Cottage. Follow this footpath past the cottage and u walk down a lovely bridal way surrounded by fields, as pictured in this post, with Mudhurst lane and Black Rocks, over on your left and Disley on your right, this leads to Green Lane with a whacky house full of Grecian statues and red phone box, turn left and follow this bridleway, this leads to a field head through the field and eventually you reach another lane, turn right, the lane crosses a bridge and eventually brings you to the gate way of East Lodge Lyme Park.
Number of options of what to do next, I like to head past East Lodge and find the path on the left that cuts across the moorland and eventually brings you to Lantern wood. Then we like to head up the top of Lantern wood and bare right and find the path that takes you to Bowstones and the amazing views of Manchester on a clear day. Then at the end of this path near Bowstones, then turn right back down the hill and back into Lyme Park.
We like to make our way up to the ridge at Paddock cottage, as there are always nice dogs to play with up there. Eventually we start to head back, heading towards the cage once over the side of The Cage you get to the car park booth and to the right is North Lodge and through the gates is red lane, which is a nice tree lined scenic way back into the village of Disley.
Once in Disley Village we cross over and drop down the lane at the side of the Dandy Cock Pub, take care walking your dog down this lane it has no pavement, and can be busy at times the road drops under the train bridge, follow the road that splits off to the left and goes up hill passed the allotment on the right and eventually this road will bring you back to the canal turn right and then its about a 25 minute walk back to New Mills.
