Goyt and Mersey Valleys
We soon arrived at Stockport where the Mersey Valley Canoe Trail begins. Whilst we were busy getting lost in the narrow streets, Stockport's 'Hat Museum' stood out as one that I might like to have a good look at on another day.

Our return journey took a different route through Stockport's Woodbank and Vernon Parks. Park life was bustling with people out enjoying the fine afternoon weather.
