We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Straightforward and pleasant canal walk.
Tow path is surfaced and step-free. Only potential access issues are some steeper cobbled sections by the locks.

Flagging this for an access issue as when walked in February 2024, the section of towpath between Birdhouse Lane and Manchester Road was technically closed. Barriers have been placed across the path due to a section of unsafe wall near the railway viaduct. However, the locks had been removed at both ends and the path was still being used.

Mostly canal towpath until near Hudds.
Can leave the towpath to the right at lock 4E before going under the bridge; turn left to head towards town.
Can also walk along the pavement of Manchester Road as a more direct, but less traffic-free, means of completing the last mile.
