Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Alan Beeby.
After leaving the tram station we will have to walk for a short period through the town of Newton Heath, after a brief wander through Brookdale park we will eventually reach Clayton Vale. This cycle park will then lead us to the Velodrome where we will stop at the Cafe before following the canal back to the City Centre. Before we reach the Centre we will stop at New Islington park which is a favourite lunch time stop of mine. After this oasis I will take you too a hidden industrial art piece followed by a new peice of street art. Depening on numbers I will finish at pub in the Northern Quarter.
