2. Ladybrook Valley Interest Trail

The Ladybrook Valley begins in the moorland countryside of the Peak District. It covers a distance of 15 kilometres. This gradually falls by 275 metres through a variety of changing landscapes and habitats. It falls to its confluence with the River Mersey at Cheadle.

After leaving its source, above the Bollinhurst Reservoir, the river changes its name more than once as it flows from east to west. It flows from the Bollinhurst Brook, Norbury Brook, the River Ladybrook and the Mickerbrook. Each one has its own distinct character and environment.
