The inaugural ‘Tea at the Tower’ guided circular walk took place on the afternoon of Sunday 22nd April 2018 from St Mary’s Church, on Monks Lane in Acton near Nantwich.
The walk was led by Nigel and Deborah Anderson who directed twenty-one walkers on a four-mile route through beautiful Cheshire countryside involving the Dorfold estate and the Shropshire Union Canal footpaths.
The weather stayed dry and all participants were full of enthusiasm and praise.
Future dates for the ‘Tea at the Tower’ guided walks are: Sunday 20th May 2018 (1pm) and Sunday 3rd June 2018 (1pm). All walks start from St Mary’s Church, Acton.
‘Tea at the Tower’ – where drinks and cakes are served (with donations gratefully received) takes place weekly on Sunday afternoons (2.30-4.30pm) throughout the year at St Mary’s. Read more.
Visitors have the opportunity to take part in a guided tour up the church tower as far as the ringing chamber.
A representative said: “It is wonderful that the first-ever ‘Tea at The Tower’ walk was a success – the feedback has been fabulous.
“The ‘Tea at The Tower’ refreshments, which began in March 2017 and raise valuable funds for St Mary’s Church, Acton, is also very popular.
“Everyone is welcome to both the walks and the weekly community cafe.”
