This is an evening walk to shake off the working day! A gradual climb up to Wharmton rewards us with cracking views of some of Manchester's finest countryside. A chance to explore some of the picturesque tracks and woodland of the Saddleworth area, before strolling back along a beautiful canal stretch and a stop at the classic Railway Inn.
