pub walk

A circular pub walk from Worsley Old Hall in Worsley, Greater Manchester. Worsley Old Hall is a beautiful country house pub with important historical connections, the perfect place from which to discover the local area. The walking route takes in the immediate area of Worsley including the golf course, the old rail line and Worsley Woods nature reserve, with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the flora and fauna. The walk is almost entirely flat, with just a couple of short slopes. The paths are a mixture of tarmac and stone/dirt the latter of which stay generally firm but can have a little bit of surface mud after rain. There are no stiles or gates on route, just some steps, staggered barriers and a couple of squeeze gaps. The walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and take care to avoid any stray golf balls. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Our first walk using the app, and what a great way to start with this excellent and easy walk, with accurate instructions. This is not so far from where we live, so we will be doing it again.
