Peak Forest Canal cycle trail

Enjoy a cycle ride through Marple, just to the east of Stockport in Greater Manchester.

Marple Aqueduct

Distance: 6.1 miles

Home to some of the greatest engineering feats of our canal network, it’s well worth taking a quick breather to marvel at Marple Locks, one of the steepest flights in the country.

Other route highlights include a river crossing and an abandoned chapel.
