Walk to the Park

The Cask Tavern, The Park Tavern, The Vale Inn

The Cask Tavern

We are organising a charity walk on Saturday 19th August from the Cask Tavern in Poynton through to The Vale Inn in Bollington and then on over Kerridge Ridge and down in to Macclefield to The Park Tavern.

Total walk of 10.5 miles (16.8K) taking roughly 4 hours gentle walking.

Paul Norman is a friend of the brewery and has embarked on the momentous challenge of raising money for Elliot’s Footprint http://www.elliotsfootprint.org/ a very important new charity close to his heart.

He will be walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (already complete) and the Bullock Smithy 56m walk. As a business we support lots of local charities but we would really like to support Paul with this so we are holding a fundraiser in the form of a Bollington Brewing Pub challenge!!

If you would like to support Paul you can donate to his JustGiving page here;



Entry fee for the walk will be £15, sign up info will be coming soon. Supervised older children and dogs are welcome on the walk.
