Meeting point: Dane Road Metrolink Station .
The walk starts by heading along the Bridgewater Way along the canal, until just before it goes under the M60. It crosses playing fields and the main A56 road, before following the River Mersey to Ashton on Mersey Village using part of the Trans Pennine Trail and other paths. After the village, it continues on suburban streets, taking in a park and some places of interest; and ends in the centre of Sale where there are plenty of coffee shops and pubs.
The walk is linear and ends at Sale Metrolink; but one tram stop or fifteen minutes walk along the canal bank will take you back to the start.
Leisurely. Part of the route follows river bank and unmade paths, so there will be mud at this time of year
