Rail Walks in Greater Manchester

Our Rail Walks on the Mid Cheshire Line vary in length and some have short cuts and extensions.

Over the years these walks have become well respected as a good day out.

Take the train and enjoy the countryside with some lovely exercise.

Most of our walks offer options for rests and refreshments where you can have a snack or a meal as well as a toilet break.

Our Rail Walks in Greater Manchester booklet cover walks from Ashley, Hale, Altrincham, Navigation Road and Manchester Piccadily Stations on the Mid Cheshire Line.

There is a circular walk from Altrincham Railway Station.  The other walks are on the flat and linear towpath of the Bridgewater Canal into Manchester.
