A selection of walks from our archive that begin in the east of Manchester or the western edge of the Peak District. NOTE: Safeguarding against the coronavirus is likley to be a part of everyday life for the forseeable future. We advise that two metres social distancing and checking the latest guidelines are the best course of action.
We head to the Lymefield & Broad Mills Heritage Site in the Etherow Valley to see remnants of a former industrial past.
Stalybridge Country Park
A stroll around Stalybridge Country Park, taking in a section of the Tameside Trail and to the site of Buckton Castle, a medieval structure which is now nothing much more than a mound.
Head for the hills around Harridge Pike and enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding area, passing a number of reservoirs along your way.
Enjoy the views from Hacking Knife, a hill 800ft above sea level, before heading off on a simple circuit around Werneth Low Country Park.
Romiley and Marple
Romiley is just a few miles south from the southern border of Tameside. We set off from here on a watery walk that takes in the River Etherow and the Peak Forest Canal.
For many people who live in Tameside, Glossop is the gateway to the Peak District. Although the previous walks have illustrated the fine countryside in the borough, this fine walk is too good to pass up.
