Walking routes

Weekend Market
Walking route 3 | 1.2km

A pram-friendly 10-15 minute walk to the site starting from South Road, Hale. Stick to the footpath all the way and cross the bridge over the river. This route can be made into a circular by joining onto route 2 or 3.

Easier to do with a baby carrier than a pram but possible with a pram (I do it regularly with a double pram). Mud can be avoided on this route.. when you get to where you cross the field go around on the road and follow the track up to ryecroft farm basically do as they do on this video and you will be mud free!
