Follow the path of Chorlton Brook on tracks, footpaths and pavements through residential and wildlife areas of Chorlton.

About this event

Join us for this free Our Green Chorlton walk following the path of Chorlton Brook on tracks, footpaths and pavements through wildlife and residential areas until it disburses into the River Mersey on its journey to the Irish Sea.

Starting at Hough End Field where Chorlton Brook is created from the meeting of Red Lion Brook and Platt Brook, we’ll see its wilder character as it runs through Hough End Clough, a hidden green gem by busy Mauldeth Road. We’ll follow Chorlton Brook, sometimes losing it, then catching sight again as it goes through Chorlton Park, then more built-up areas, finally finishing with a lovely walk by its side through Chorlton Ees. After seeing the brook meet the Mersey, we will walk back to the Chorlton Ees carpark opposite the Bowling Green.

On the way we’ll have a peak at 16th century Hough End Hall and stop for 10-15 minutes for a drink/comfort break at the Bowling Green pub.

Start: 10am at Hough End Leisure Centre entrance, 5 minutes’ walk from Withington tram stop

Finish: Chorlton Ees Car Park on Brookburn Road, Chorlton M21 9ES

Total walk distance: 3.5 miles/5.7k Total walk time: approximately 2 hours 30mins-3 hours

Option to leave the walk The Bowling Green pub after about 1.5-2 hours; omitting the walk into Chorlton Ees. Over 16s welcome; well behaved dogs on leads welcome.
