A circular walk from Styal village through the Bollin valley and back past the runway of Manchester Airport. After the walk you can explore Styal village with its thatched cottages and half timbered buildings. The walk crosses the River Bollin several times and can be muddy in winter. There are some steep climbs. You will need to negotiate several gates (including kissing gates), footbridges and flights of steps. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

about 2km of road but rest of it good for dogs.

Nice and varied walk through woodland, fields and you even get to see some planes! We really enjoyed it!

Beautiful views! The directions after the airport were a little confusing for me but once I finally got sorted I really enjoyed myself. Some muddy areas and you have to be watchful for the many exposed tree roots.

Great walk, highly recommended. A mixture of terrain and aeroplanes !

A fantastic trail. Great walk, lovely views, woodlands and streams. Great for dogs to explore and swim. Brilliantly time, highly recommended ⭐️

I only live 15mins away and never knew about this great spot. It was pouring down so it was rather quiet, which was great. You pass the river a couple of times and walk through the woodlands, lots of steps to climb up and down but the scenery is lovely. The walk back from the airport path is all on narrow roads so need to be careful if you have children but I will certainly be back.

You could make it a pub based circular walk by parking at the ship inn, a couple of hundred yards from the chapel car park
