Moderate 12 miles / 19.3 km
A linear walk to the north of Manchester, getting the tram out to Bury to start. We'll follow the route of the East Lancs trainline and Irwell scuplture trail through a countrypark to Ramsbottom. We climb up to Peel Tower, where we will hopefully have some great views over the surrounding hills with Manchester city centre in the distance. Then we head through woodland and farmland, also passing the Krypton Factor assault course on the way.
We finish the walk by Wayoh reservoir. Entwistle train station is right next to the Strawbury Duck pub, for drinks and/or food if you choose, before getting the train home.
