Rod L
A fairly easy seven mile circular walk from Moses Gate Country Park, Hall Lane, Farnworth, along the historic Manchester/Bolton/Bury canal and the River Irwell. The canal is being partially restored by volunteers. The walk encompasses pleasant woodland and great views over open countryside.
Please bring a packed lunch as we shall stop at a point where we cross the Irwell.
We shall pass towards the end of the walk the Horseshoe Pub at Ringley where we can stop for a drink.
Walking boots are recommended as the going can be muddy.
