Walk description

An easy flat 5.5 mile walk through the woods and past the shoreline of Sale water park along the paths until we reached the River Mersey, David Rhodes led us as we crossed over the bridge and continued until we reached the Bridgewater canal.  We then continued along the canal passing through Stretford until we reached Stretford Marina where we will have our lunch break.  Afterwards we will continued walking along the towpath passing through the industrial landscape of Trafford Park towards Patricroft, Eccles.  Just before the above we left the canal and headed towards the metrolink tram stop outside the Trafford Centre where we took the tram to Cornbrook and then changed for the Manchester Airport tram which took us back to Sale Water Park tram stop, our starting point.
