Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Al.
This is a nice easy evening walk. We use the metro to get to the walk. Take a gentle stroll along a disused railway track, beside Elton Reservoir, along a disused canal and also along the Irwell Sculpture Trail. At the end we end up in a nice Bury pub for a quick drink or two.
