This in from Phil Braybrooke about the MCDG ‘cross: “We have had to change the venue for this event due to restrictions imposed by Manchester City Council on the use Of Phillips Park. The new venue will be Clayton Vale

Pignut Hill, Northwich

A good mix of wide grass and testing woodland. Because of the amount of grass, it could be lightening-fast or a mud bath…. keep an eye on the weather before this one. Trees are put to good use on the
