A thirty six mile illustrated Walking Route created by Greenmount Village Walking Group.

This book describes and illustrates the thirty-six mile, fifty-eight kilometre route, created by Greenmount Village Walking Group, from Whalley through South East Lancashire to the heart of Greater Manchester, through a beautiful landscape, alongside historic canals and rivers, through interesting villages, across open moorland, along disused railways. It uses ‘Greenway’ corridors through towns and cities, making it a most interesting and enjoyable countryside walk between St. Mary’s Church Whalley and Manchester Cathedral.

The book costs £3 and is available from Bury Tourist Information Centre, Moss Street, Bury (In the Fusiliers’ museum), or from Walk Leaders at the end of any of our guided walks. It can also be sent by post, costing £5 which includes p&p. Email info@westpennineway.org. You will then receive an email on how to pay by direct banking.
