Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Stu Edwards.
A personal favourite, this walk captures some of the highlights of a full day walk while showcasing some of the stunning countryside around the Manchester area. Escape the clutch of suburbia - stroll along quiet country tracks, criss-cross the River Etherow, wander through woodland and pause to admire the stunning views of the Pennines beyond...
