307 Macclesfield Forest 2

Macclesfield Forest is a favourite walk for many, with shelter on windy days and cool shade in scorching summer heat, but vantage points and long distant views are scarce. Here though after a steady climb the summit of Nessit Hill is reached with a seat where the valley opens up below and the view is well worth a few minutes break.
