BCV Rambles Walks 2019

26th May 2019 - Kingfisher Trail
Distance: 7 miles
Difficulty: Easy

Plan is to complete the Kingfisher Trail by walking the southern section from Moses Gate to Whitefield. It is a 7 miles, easy, flat, (technically downhill) pleasing stretch through Nob End SSSI, along the disused and naturalised Manchester, Bolton, Bury Canal, through Clifton Country Park to Philips Park and then to the Eagle & Child on Higher Lane Whitefield M45 7EY for Lunch.

As we cannot identify a direct bus service back to base we need to meet at 10:30 am at Moses Gate to place cars at the end and start walking at 11:00 am. We expect to arrive at the pub around 2:00 pm.
It is essential that you contact Trish on 07962 130 420 to book so that we can make sure we have enough transport between us.
