Fall for the great outdoors this autumn
Autumn is settling in across Greater Manchester, bringing with it the perfect opportunity to wrap up warm and explore the great outdoors!
When it comes to parks and woodlands, we’re spoilt for choice across the North West; whether you’re looking for a historic park full of character or a hidden trail to get lost in, there are so many places to feel the crunch of leaves underfoot and bask in the glory of autumn.
Here are our top picks for exploring the great outdoors this autumn:
Fletcher Moss, Didsbury
Sprawling from the River Mersey to Stenner Woods, Fletcher Moss offers a hearty walk amongst beautiful foliage. It’s also a great spot for birdwatchers, and for good reason – the RSPB was founded in Fletcher Moss Gardens back in 1889!
Buile Hill Park, Salford
This picturesque spot is the biggest park in Salford, and a popular option for families. Boasting a Grade II listed Georgian mansion house, Buile Park offers plenty of open green space, plus wooded areas to explore. The Park also has connections to a few famous faces, with painter LS Lowry and author Frances Hodgson Barnett amongst its admirers.
Alderley Edge, Cheshire
If you fancy venturing a little further afield, why not visit Alderley Edge? The subject of its very own magical legend, Alderley Edge features plenty of different trails to follow and landmarks to spot – ideal for keeping little ones occupied! It’s also a hub of wildlife, with redstarts, nuthatches, and flycatchers just some of the woodland birds to look out for.
Fuel up with Creamline
We all know that a treat tastes twice as good after a long walk! Our Best of Local sweet treats, including Maple & Pecan Pastries and Flapjacks, make great post-hike snacks.
