Route A of this walk goes through Worsley Woods to Monton and along the Bridgewater Canal to Barton Swing Aqueduct, which is the start of the final stage of the main Salford Trail loop back to Salford Quays. An alternative Route B along the Salford Greenway leads to Brookhouse and Peel Green, linking to stages 9 and 10 of the Salford Trail to the west.
This is one of the 10 routes of the Salford Trail – a new, long distance walk of about 50 miles/80 km, entirely within the boundaries of the City of Salford. It was devised by members of Manchester and Salford Ramblers in conjunction with Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester. Leaflets describing the other stages of the trail can also be downloaded from this site.
Accessibility and facilities
While many sections of the route are likely to be suitable for wheelchair-users and for families with pushchairs, we have not been able to verify conditions on the ground. For this reason, we are not currently classifying this walk as wheelchair or pushchair-friendly.
All of the walks on the Salford Trail are designed to be – and are most easily – accessed by public transport.
