The 6 Mile Route:
The last drop village stands high above Bolton on the edge of the hills and makes an excellent starting point for this walk across a scenic golf course, over one bridge of towers and turrets (one of which can be climbed) and past another, through woods to the attractive village of Chapeltown. You will visit two reservoirs offering extensive views linked by a delightful wooded gorge with a rippling stream, and the medieval country house of Turton Tower, which stands in pleasant grounds. There is no difficult walking on this route.
Once we've completed our walk we will head back for a well-deserved Sunday lunch. Please note any Food & Refreshments are payable by you at the pub.
Don’t worry if you haven’t got access to a car, our members are happy to car-share in exchange for a contribution towards petrol.
What our members say:
Thanks for a wonderful walk around Dunham Massey. It was a beautiful sunny day, we took our time and we met and fed the deer. Perfect. Nic.
My GP had recommended I get active. The easy pace and distances coupled with the promise of sunday lunch had me sign up for Social Circle straight away. As a bonus, I got a 10 day pass to my local gym too. Dave
