Situated in Westhoughton, Bolton, Hall Lee Bank Park runs in a north-south direction. The northern section is an Edwardian park with tarmac paths and an internal circular walk. The southern section is a woodland walk with gently sloping stone paths.
In addition, there is a separate Hall Lee Bank Local Nature Reserve to the north. Both the park and nature reserve, and other paths to the east, are shown on the downloadable PDF file.
The main walk route listed here, of only 1 mile / 1.6 km there and back, is provided by the Walks with Wheelchairs website. According to its author:
“There is no need to use steps, but a couple of slopes would involve a strong push for anyone pushing a wheelchair. People pushing buggies would find it a good workout without barriers. The park can be accessed at the northern end via Park Road, at the southern end via Leigh Road (Daisy Hill Station is located immediately adjacent to the southern end), or approximately half way up via Landedmans (off Leigh Road), although this does involve steps.”
Note that we have not been able to verify conditions on the ground.
How to get there
There is direct access to Hall Lee Bank Park from Daisy Hill rail station (the main start point shown on this page). This does not, however, offer step-free access to the platforms. For the nature reserve, the most convenient access point is adjacent to Cow Lee Bridge on Bolton Road to the north (the alternative start point on this page).
