With each walk having its own colour map and a detailed route description, this self-led walks booklet supports independent walking and invites the wider communities of Bury to step outside and enjoy exploring their local green spaces. We encourage you to invite friends, family or neighbours to join with you time and time again and in doing so, to make walking outdoors part of a healthier active lifestyle that everyone within the communities and neighbourhoods of Bury can enjoy.

About the walks…

Within the booklet you will find two walk options for each of the six townships, those being;

  • Ramsbottom, Tottington and North Manor
  • Whitefield and Unsworth
  • Bury West
  • Prestwich
  • Bury East
  • Radcliffe

Each walk is circular, no more than 3½ miles in distance and should take between 60-90
minutes for most people to complete. The start points for each walk are accessible by
public transport with either a bus or tram stop close by. Most will also have café/toilet
facilities located either at the start/end of the walk or part way along the route.

To make finding your way a little easier, each route map is numbered and will coincide with the accompanying numbered route description on the opposite page of each downloadable guide. Please use this as a reference to guide you along the route especially at junction points.

Bury Walk with Me is a series of local walks led by trained volunteer walk leaders in association with Bury Live Well Service and The Ramblers Walking for Health Scheme. This self-led booklet maps out some of the most popular walks from the scheme.
