Merelake Way
The Merelake Way is an approximately 1 mile / 1.5 kms long trail for walkers, located on the southern edge of Alsager. It follows the track bed of the former Alsager to Keele railway line, following a wooded cutting as it climbs uphill towards the Staffordshire border at Merelake.

The Audley branch railway
The 'Audley branch', between Alsager Junction and Keele, closed to passenger traffic in April 1931, and to all traffic in January 1963. The section between Alsager and Merelake has been designated the 'Merelake Way', and is managed by Cheshire East Council. The stretch between Bignall End and Halmer End is a popular walking and dog-exercising route, and is always referred to locally as 'the lines'.
