With views like this it's no wonder the Macclesfield Canal is so popular with boaters and walkers alike.
We're now moored at Higher Poynton, overlooking the playing fields. I don't particularly like mooring here but it was the only place we could find a space.
There are lots of passing walkers most of whom have dogs off the lead. Because they wander off oblivious to what their dogs are doing, there is dog muck all along the towpath. They don't seem to be too bothered about dropping litter either!
