Reasons for trip

You would think I would be biased in favour of this local attraction, having grown up in this area, but, although there have been changes to make this better it is now so well used by walkers and their dogs, it is now a challenge to get to the top without stepping in the abundant piles of dog poo! Yes – dog poo! Many people clean up after their dogs, many others don't and leave either a steaming pile – or not, depending on the age of it – or, and I don't know if this is worse – a bag of dog poo, tied up and left on a path, or a bench. Either way it is disgusting, and as a result I avoid walking in this 'beauty spot'.

It's such a shame – no, it's a disgrace – that dog owners are mistreating this place because there is some lovely, and lively walking to be had, not to mention the panoramic views to be had from the top. There's a large compass, set in a stone table, at the top of the hill with all the landmarks marked on it; on a clear day you can see all the way over to Jodrell bank – and standing on the top when one of the Emirates airbus planes glides majestically on its way to Manchester airport, is breathtaking.

The war memorial, or cenotaph, right at the top dominates the skyline for quite a few miles. On a clear day you should be able to see wind turbines and Hartshead Pike, way in the distance. So, yes, there are positives about a walk up to the top of Werneth Low, but is it marred by the aforementioned canine contributions being left by their owners.
