Banish the blues and get out and about!
This week saw Blue Monday come and
go! If the dark days and chilly weather are getting you down, why not make the
most of the daylight hours and get out and about on one of the many walks
around Greater Manchester?
According to Walking
for Health, a good walk can have a real feel good factor and boost
our mood. It’s the perfect winter activity for the whole family – so get
wrapped up, tie up your walking shoes and give one of these routes a try!
Houses, Highest Hill – a trip from historic Smithills Hall to Winter
Hill, you can be certain of stunning views on this walk!
Tor Ridge from Castleton – you’ll be warmed up in no time, taking in
the scenery of the Edale Valley on this walk of around 6 miles.
Sculpture Trail – if you’re looking for a walk with little ones in
tow, this is the one for you! With over 30 sculptures over a stretch of 33
miles through Salford, this walk can be as long or short as you make it.
Warm up with Creamline!
You’ll be in need of a hearty meal
to warm you up after your stroll – in our Recipes section, we’ve
got plenty of suggestions to help you refuel.
