Wizards Thatch Alderley Edge
Alderley Edge National Trust

National Trust

Enjoy some of the finest views across Cheshire towards the Peak District by visiting The Edge, run by the National Trust. Only a few minutes walk from Wizards Thatch, The Edge has spectacular scenery, where you can walk through oak and beech woodland, see prehistoric and roman copper mines and treat yourself to a traditional afternoon tea at the Wizards Café.

Explore The Edge and discover the Wizards’ face encased for ever in the rock and make a wish at the wishing well,  dance in the druids circle or seek out the Golden Stone for its reputed  mystical powers. Meander around woods to Hare Hill, a charming wooded and walled garden with a pergola and sculptures at its heart and back to the car park for a delicious locally made Granelli's ice cream.

Alderley Edge is surrounded by other National Trust properties such as  Lyme Park, where they filmed Pride & Prejudice, Dunham Massey, Tatton Park, the interior was used for Brideshead Revisited and Little Morton Hall, probably Britain’s finest timber framed moated manor house.
