Celebrating Manchester’s Green Corridor Walking Circuit


Avid walkers from across the city recently joined together to celebrate the 1st year anniversary of Manchester’s Green Corridor Walking Circuit.

To mark the occasion 30 people walked a 2-mile route from Ivy Green Nature Reseve, Chorlton Ees to Chorlton Water Park; taking in the spectacular winter view of the River Mersey.

Manchester’s Green Corridor Walking Circuit was launched in October 2012. It was developed in partnership between the Trust’s Public Health Development Service, Manchester City Council, Redrose Forest and the Ramblers. The partnership continues to work together to promote the Manchester Green corridor project.

The Green Corridor is made up of 14 routes, which connect many of the beautiful green spaces and tree-lined streets dotted across Manchester. The routes take in many of the 138 green spaces that Manchester has to offer. The aim of this unique project is to encourage more people to adopt healthier lifestyles and to increase usage of Manchester’s green spaces.

Each route averages 4 miles and you can access all the information you need to make the walk as easy, interesting and enjoyable as possible by going to:
