The canal is nice to walk or cycle along, lots of places to see along the way. Various different eating places to stop at. Passes thru some lovely countryside, worth a look

“Very pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Took the dogs for a very pleasant walk along the towpath towards, spent a good couple of hours - there's obviously been a lot of investment made, the area was clean and very attractive, especially as you head north out of Rochdale.
