Members and friends are invited to take a walk along the line of the canal - and return by tram!

The walk of around 6 miles will start at Fairfield Junction, Droylsden, and follow the route of the Hollinwood Branch Canal through Littlemoss and Daisy Nook to Hollinwood and then the line of the Werneth Canal to Washbrook. This includes following by road sections that have long been filled in.

Return to Droylsden will be by Metrolink tram, changing at Victoria. An off-peak Day ticket for the Metrolink can be bought from a machine on the platform for £4.90 (or £5.50 for a family or 2 adults travelling together).

Meet at Lock Keepers Court, Droylsden (opposite Tesco) at 10.30 am on Sunday 7th April. Room for car parking at Lock Keepers Court. Lunch at Daisy Nook where toilets, hot drinks and snacks are available. Stout footwear ana waterproof clothing advised.

  1. do you not have any modern photos of this part of the canal,the one shown, must be at least 10-15 years old, as there`s no open water now,and absolutly no trees on the bankside as you have cut them all down. don`t show it as it used to be ie. through rose tinted spectacles, show things as they are today.

    1. We're sorry that you don't like this photo. It was included to show part of the canal away from Daisy Nook that fewer people might be familiar with.
      It shows Cinderland Bridge and was taken 8 years ago and - yes - there is not as much open water there now.
      The Canal Society has not been involved with any work at this location.
