This walk is one of ten exciting routes designed to help you explore some of Trafford’s most beautiful countryside and parks on foot.
This circular route takes walkers on a journey along Sinderland Brook towards Carrington Moss. The walk follows the northern bank of the brook past Woodheys Park, where walkers can explore the woodland path or stop for picnic. The route then joins Woodcote Road and continues along a track towards Firsway. Walkers are encouraged to follow the ‘Public Footpath Number 23’ sign after Woodhouse Farm and continue towards the Sinderland Brook Estate. The final section guides people along an old disused railway track and across Woodcote Road to Woodheys Clough where a giant sequoia awaits.
Accessibility and facilities
Paths are surfaced in areas but soft underfoot elsewhere. Some will become muddy after rainfall. This walk is therefore not recommended for wheelchair-users and may be tricky in places for those with pushchairs.
While there are no toilets en route, there are pubs on the main Washway Road (A56) and the “Just the Ticket” cafe next to Timperley Metrolink station.
