Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Aimee Teare.
This walk is like a sandwich. We start the walk from Brinnington train station briefly walking through the streets of Brinnington (the bottom slice of bread) before entering the beautiful surroundings of Reddish Vale Country Park (the filling). We then emerge for a brief stroll through the streets of Stockport (the top slice of bread) to the pub and the end of the walk. We will be finishing at The Crown a small real ale pub tucked under Stockport's landmark viaduct.
