"It's a lovely scenic walk and there will be information about the history of the area and the railway" said Partnership vice-chair Julie Levy. "We suggest people wear strong footwear, hbring waterproofs just in case and bring along a flask and sandwich - we'll have a picnic stop on the way!"
Ian McHugh of Bolton City of Sanctuary, said "This walk is mainly downhill and is on good, well-used footpaths. Much of the way is through woodland or alongside reservoirs and is evry picturesque. The walk leaders have maps and know the route area very well."
