Meeting at "The Plaque" which is situated at Salford Quays Metro stop 10.30 am
and finishing at Peel Park, Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
An interesting linear easy walk to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the opening of The Salford Trail.
Enjoy a stretch of the Salford Trail, a 50-mile, long distance path created by Ramblers volunteers. A particular gem along the way is Ordsall Hall, a Grade 1 listed house which used to sit amongst a densely populated working class area with mills and docks. The oldest part still standing dates back to the 15th century. Approached from one side, it looks like a grand brick mansion, but on the east side, away from the road, it's a black and white timbered Tudor building.
There’s free entry, so explore the hall’s fascinating history and look out for the resident ghost! .
At the end of the walk we will visit the Joseph Brotherton statue in Peel Park.
There is car parking at the start (fee payable). Metro link service to the start. Buses 8,67, 36, 37, 38, V1 V2 at the finish.
Suitable for all walkers. No wheelchairs or pushchairs
