Put your best foot forward this autumn
If there’s one thing we can depend
on this year, it’s the changing seasons. Autumn is well and truly here across
Greater Manchester, so time to wrap up warm and put your best foot forward!
We’re spoilt for choice when it
comes to the great outdoors in the North West, but if you need any further
persuasion, studies have shown that a walk for just 30
minutes each day could have huge health benefits.
Here are our top picks for spotting
those striking autumn colours this October.
Fletcher Moss, Didsbury
Proof that you
don’t have to venture far to enjoy a hearty walk, Fletcher Moss sprawls from
the River Mersey to Stenner Woods – it’s a great spot for birdwatching too!
Heaton Park, Prestwich
Keen to beat the
crowds? Heaton Park is the biggest park in Manchester, with acres of space for
the whole family to stretch their legs.
Alderley Edge, Cheshire
If you fancy
venturing a little further afield, make a beeline for Alderley Edge. There are
plenty of different trails to follow and landmarks to spot – ideal for keeping
little ones occupied!
Keep fuelled with Creamline
Any hiker worth their salt knows
that stocking up with tasty treats is one of the perks of a long walk! Try our
Best of Local sweet treats,
& Millionaire Flapjack or Choc Chip
Muffins (it is National Chocolate Week, after all!).
If you fancy something a little
healthier, our Granola
Bars are an essential recipe for you to try yourself at home, packed with
energy boosting ingredients. Don’t forget our fresh fruit produce from
Manchester’s Smithfield Market too.
