Didnt exactly follow your route but want to thank you for pointing out the area. The views, sites and ruins are amazing. I agree the lack of walks in the area are poor. We got our 11 month old Springer Spaniel in June 2012 and would love to know of suitable places to take her where she can roam off lead. The local parks to us are great but we struggle to find other places. Thanks
Hi There, and thanks for leaving a very positive comment on my Review, You could try in the area The Reservoir @ Rivington, Anglezarke or White Coppice Car park at Anglezarke. From Junction 9 M61 take A674 towards Blackburn. Turn right for Heapey and White Coppice. At White Coppice follow signs for Rivington and Anglezarke. After passing viewpoint and small car park descend sharply towards reservoir. At bottom of the incline turn right into the car park. As For the more adventurous White Coppice Cricket Club The Green White Coppice Lancashire PR6 9DE Free Car Parking the road to the club can be a bit wild! as it is mainly a gravel track Park the car at the club, follow the path to the gates at the top of the Cricket Pitch, you can either turn left or go straight on here, as Its mainly a circular track. Id say its in the region of a 4 or 5 mile walk, plenty of dog walkers and plenty of Spaniel-ing to be done, be careful of the sheep in the field, use a good lead where necessary I dont know where you are from, but We have found the beauty of walk is getting out there and exploring Have a look at the link Link → Mark
We are from Northern Moor near Sale. It was only a 25 mins drive to Lever Park and now i cant wait to show my wife the route we walked. Thanks for the other information.
Lyme Park in Stockport Is Excellent for Woofie Walks, I can also recommend Tandle Hill & Daisy Nook Daisy Nook Country Park is located on the border of Oldham and Tameside. It is surrounded by Oldham Road (A627), Newmarket Road and Stannybrook Road. The main car park is located by the visitor centre just off Stannybrook Road. Additional car parks are at Crime Lake and Bardsley off the A627. Toilets and refreshments The main visitor centre is found just off Stannybrook Road with a café, toilets and a Countryside Ranger Office located within the centre. Just off the car park there is a new children’s play area and picnic tables.
6 years agoTry Dovestones reservoir near Greenfield. For a water dog welcome to heaven. M60 to Denton then Ashton, Stalybridge, Mossley to Greenfield. From a local lad now in Staffordshire.
