759 Chelford

This walk nearly wasn't. The path clearly marked on the latest OS map had gone and ahead lay Chelford sand quarry. Fortunately we met Sue and Poppy, a chocolate labrador, who acted as guides to make this one of the finest walks we've had in the snow. Returning several years later we discovered plans to turn the Astles Estate quarry lake into Chelford Quarry Watersports Centre had just been approved, so the footpath route through the quarry may well change yet again.
