Walking

Fancy a moorland hike or a woodland ramble. Bury offers options for all of these. If you're confident with a map and want to organise your own walks, Ordnance Survey Explorer maps 277 and 19 will show you most of the paths or click here for additional information on walks, trails and events across the Borough.

For added culture try the Irwell Sculpture trail the longest sculpture route in the UK or explore some of Bury’s beautiful villages with the Village Link Guide with walks for all ages and ability.

If you want suggestions the Bury Tourist Information Centre has a wide selection of leaflets and guides. Visit them in The Fusilier Museum, Bury town centre or call 0161 253 5111
