Flat walk in local park

Join Barry and Outdoor lads for a midweek stroll through Sankey Valley Park. The route is a flat, circular 5 mile walk - enough to start burning off the  pub lunch!

Sankey Valley Park was the site of Bewsey Old Hall and you can still see the remains of the monastic grange that existed on the site previously.

The Sankey Canal runs through, which is a popular walking route and connects to the Trans-Pennine Trail. The disused locks are still in place and able to be crossed.

One of the features of this park is the hedge maze in the centre of the park near the old hall. It had previously been in use during the 80's and 90's before falling into disrepair. Local community groups have recently restored the maze and mosaics within to their former glory.

Should you find your way out of the maze,  we will then retire to The Maltings for a spot of lunch which offers standard pub grub, stacked burgers and steaks.
