Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Steve Rawlins.
A very gentle walk from Chorlton, along the canals to Altrincham for food and drinks in the Market Hall. We'll take a slight detour along the way through Dunham Massey where we'll have a cheeky pint in the Swan with Two Nicks.
If the weather is pleasant there is also an option for a further beer garden stop before we reach Dunham.
The terrain is good throughout, if the weather is dry this walk can be done in trainers.
Walk leader to meet at the start of the walk outside the Co-Op which is just over the road from the metrolink stop.
Please note there is more than one Co-Op and more than one metrolink stop in Chorlton.
To get to the Barlow Moor road Met Stop by tram you will need to get the Manchester Airport line. If travelling through the city centre first, change at Deansgate or Cornbrook. Please allow 30 mins from the City Centre. We'll start the walk as soon as the next tram after 11.30 arrives.
