Hollingworth Lake is in a country park and there are several lovely country walks. If you have ever been over the Pennines on the M62 you will have seen it, on the left, as you climb the hill into Yorkshire! There is a visitor centre, a couple of pubs, cafes and restaurants. A great chippie and an amusement arcade. The walk round the lake is about 2.5 km - just right for a stroll and with a good surface. It gets very busy on Bank holidays and when the weather is nice.
