Some walks at Aussie Dog Care.

At Aussie Dog Care when walking home boarding clients and dog walking clients I like to stick to local walks. Here I am sharing with you some lovely walks around my area which dogs enjoy as well as me!

At Etherow Park I like to park in Compstall and walk to the weir , through Ernocroft wood and back to the Café ( which serves lovely coffee and cakes ) . However you can turn this walk into a much longer and tiring ( for me and the dogs) route by walking past the weir cottages on your right , you can walk up to Werneth Low Park from here but also around the back of Etherow Country Park. Lots of streams are here for doggies to paddle in and some great picnic spots!

I can reach Etherow Country Park by foot which is why I am quite lucky as the dogs all enjoy the walk to and from the Park especially when the dogs need that extra bit of a walk!

Werneth Low Country Park  is another fantastic place to go with your dogs it has the Tameside Trial and the much longer Trans Pennine Trail passing through it! I am very lucky to be able to walk to Werneth Low Country Park from my house and the dogs have a fantastic time!

“The country park extends for 80 hectares (200 acres) across the Northern and Western slopes of Werneth Low. Only 9.5 miles from the city centre of Manchester, the area is both a haven for wildlife and an area where visitors can find peace and relaxation. The park’s location provides panoramic views across Manchester and beyond to Liverpool. The dark blue silhouette of the Welsh mountains can often be seen on clear days, as can the Pennine hills close by.”

We also love walks around Marple Canal and Brabyns Park! Brabyns Park is fantastic for socializing your dogs and allowing them that wind down off the lead … I know my clients enjoy it !

When the sun is out Brabyns can make for a fantastic picnic spot! But you will have to keep the dogs away from the lovely food and it also gets very busy around midday in summer months!

Chadkirk Chapel and Country estate is a beautiful scenic place to take any member of the family. It is a stones throw away from Romiley Village and a mere 15 minute walk from my home I love having this area of Biologic Importance and beauty so close to home. Many dogs have enjoyed the walks around the estate and surrounding walks toward the garden centre.

“Chadkirk Country Estate is a haven for wildlife, helped by sympathetic and environmentally friendly ways of maintaining the various habitats.

The meadows, pastures, woodland fringes and the gardens all provide valuable food and shelter to a wide variety of species including birds, invertebrates and small mammals.

Kirk Wood and Little Wood are both SBIs (Sites of Biological Importance) and the entire Estate has been designated as a LNR (Local Nature Reserve).” From – http://www.stockport.gov.uk/

Dog Walking at Marple Dale

We really enjoyed great walks at Aussie Dog Care so we have decided to share with everyone this fantastic walk into Maple Dale alongside the River Goyt , passing Marple Hall.

Below quoted from  http://www.marple-uk.com/Dale.htm

 

“1) After parking at Rose Hill car park we cross Stockport Road at the pelican crossing and make our way down Dale Road.

2) After about 10 minutes walk the road narrows and begins to descend, passing Marple Dale Care Centre on the left. The wide track continues down into the valley and to our right the ground drops away steeply through the trees to the River Goyt.

3) At the bottom of the hill Manchester Canoe Club have a site and the river is marked off with several slalom courses. On the other side of the river high up on the hillside runs the Peak Forest Canal.

4) At Lower Dale we leave the track and take a footpath to the right of the wall.

5) Below the weir the ancient ford may be seen. Before the building of Otterspool Bridge this was the route that transport of the day used on its way to Romiley. The site of the proposed Sustrans Connect2 bridge which will provide a link between Marple and Stockport for pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders is near the weir.The path follows alongside the river. It can be very muddy after rain and care is needed in places as erosion has brought the river very close to the path. On our left looking across the fields the clump of trees is Turncliff Wood. Beyond, the ground rises very steeply and it was here for over 300 years that Marple Hall held a commanding view over the river valley.The farm dates back to 1719 but in the 1900s the Y.M.C.A. ran a farm colony here where groups of boys were trained in farming techniques at a time of high unemployment. Many of them eventually went to Canada.

6) Joining a path at the top of the hill we can bear right if we wish to take advantage of the nearby refreshment facilities at Marple Garden Centre or the Hare and Hounds public house on Dooley Lane.As we enter the woods we cross a fence which has been broken down. Steps now lead the way up the hillside.

7) Dooley Lane was one of the main entrances to Marple Hall many years ago before the present road up Dan Bank was built.

Returning up the hill we make our way past the playing fields of Marple Hall School. Whilst passing the playing fields and getting close to the site of Marple Hall look to the left down into the valley and you may be able to see the site of the old ornamental pond. This has recently refilled with water, either by accident or design. There were once steps running down to this pond from Marple Hall and there was a small building called the Hermitage on the island that can now be seen again.

8) A head stone and an area of stones marks the site of the 17th century mansion Marple Hall. This is where the most famous or infamous John Bradshawe lived in 1620. In 1649 John Bradshawe was the President of the High Court of Justice appointed to try King Charles I and his is the first signature on the subsequent death warrant.

The interior in the 1920s looked like this, with fine pictures and suits of armour lining the walls.Unfortunately we are unable to enjoy the splendour of this magnificent building because in the 1950s, when it was left unoccupied due to the death of the caretaker, vandals reduced the building to a ruin within a period of less then a year. During this time Marple Council had been offered the hall for £7,000, but it was not within their means to restore and maintain it. The Hall was finally demolished in the late 1950s.


9) From where we are now this is how it looked in the 1930s before any of the present houses were built.We continue past the site and onto Marple Hall Drive and make our way towards Stockport Road.”

National Trust: Lyme Park Disley

At Aussie Dog Care we love regular trips to Lyme Park in Disley . If you scroll down below you can see our amazing day trip recently ay Lyme Park Disley , dog walking ! I actually used to live in Lyme Park! You can go on some many walks at Lyme Park in Disley and all the dogs are very tired out after their trip!

“Lyme Park is a large estate located south of DisleyCheshire. The estate is managed by the National Trust and consists of a mansion house surrounded by formal gardens, in a deer park in the Peak District National Park.[1] The house is the largest in Cheshire,[2] and is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building.[3]

The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in the possession of the Legh family until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust. The house dates from the latter part of the 16th century. Modifications were made to it in the 1720s by Giacomo Leoni, who retained some of the Elizabethan features and added others, particularly the courtyard and the south range. It is difficult to classify Leoni’s work at Lyme, as it contains elements of both Palladian and Baroque styles.[a] Further modifications were made by Lewis Wyatt in the 19th century, especially to the interior. Formal gardens were created and developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house, gardens and park have been used as locations for filming and they are open to the public. The Lyme Caxton Missal is on display in the Library.” Quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyme_Park
