Before you move: Saddleworth Museum, right next to the canal in Uppermill- surprising local history stuff.

Then: Portland Basin Museum as you turn onto the Peak Forest in Ashton

Marple Aqueduct: take a stroll down the recently built  path to go under the structure and take in its magnificence.

Marple Locks: 212 years old and still functioning.

Anson Engine Museum at Poynton, a huge collection of mainly diesel engines to remind us of when we made stuff in this country.

Macclesfield Silk Museum- tours by knowledgable guides and demonstrations of  silk weaving.

As far as pubs are concerned, you could look at my 2014 Pub Cruise https://canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/topic/71403-2014-pub-cruise-long-post/&tab=comments#comment-1432831 and also the 2016 one https://canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/topic/88767-2016-pub-cruise/  which cover this stretch.

Edited to say also the 2015 edition (link in the 2016 one)
