Went with parents and children, outdoor adventure suitable for fairly active people. Great views of the lake and countryside. A must for photographers. We had lunch in the cafe, which was very reasonably priced and cooked very well by the lad on his own. My youngest was very impressed with the hot vimto, as not many places do this and... More

Reason for 4 stars not 5 is some confusion in... More

Now located in restored stone factory buildings it provides kayaking, orienteering and wall climbing facilities, with a bunkhouse accommodation. Walking the Irwell Sculpture Trail from above Bacup to the Manchester Ship Canal in Salford I came across this hidden gem as part... More

Easy parking and well signed to see where you are. paths are easy to follow and wide and great for people with families and those with wheelchairs. Following the river Irwell you wind through the park and everything is well kept and clean. great place for walkers and dog... More
