Event description

Description

Chadderton HallPark to Foxdenton Park via the Rochdale Canal and return

UProjects invite you on a free led walk in partnership with Oldham Council’s Environmental Services.

The walk is one of many Oldham walks featured in the Transport for Greater Manchester Walking Festival

We will meet at the Pavilion Café that is situated at the gates to ChaddertonHallPark at 10:30am to set off at 11:00am.

Meet point

Leaving the café we take a walk through ChaddertonHallPark.

The park was opened on 19th May 1956 and is located on the former site of Chadderton Hall. Purchased by the council in 1953, the 6.47 hectare park has links to TandleHillCountryPark, IrkValley and RochdaleCanal.

Route

We will take a short woodland walk along the River Irk that flows through the park followed by a 2.63K walk along he RochdaleCanal to FoxdentonPark,

Route

FoxdentonPark is an oasis away from the hustle and Bustle of modern day Chadderton Life and is graced with a 1620 Hall, which is encompassed by landscaped gardens and an ornamental duck pond.

Route

The Park is dominated by mature trees and attracts a rich array of bird, insect and mammal life.

Route

We will retrace our route back along the Rochdale canal to ChaddertonHallPark and the Pavilion Café.

The walk will be led by Uprojects qualified walk leaders Alan & Gaynor Keane

The total walk distance is 7.30 KM

The walk route is mainly on good surfaces but some sections of the canal towpath and woodland walk can be muddy so comfortable walking shoes or boots are recommended.

Be prepared for the weather, bring waterproof coat/trousers in case of wet weather, hat and gloves. Any spare layers and water are best carried in a small rucksack or similar.

Children are welcome with responsible parents, some sections of the route are not suitable for prams and buggies.

We will be walking at a moderate pace (for health benefits)

There will be front and back leaders to ensure safety.

You will be expected to fill in a short questionnaire before we start the walk
