SATURDAY 6th AUGUST 2022 10a.m. start
Anyone who was able to join us for the Uttoxeter canal walk last year will have a good idea what to expect here! The Runcorn and Latchford canal was dissected by building of the Manchester Ship canal and only part of it was able to continue trading, but surprisingly bits of it still remain.
This is a circular walk starting and finishing at Moore Nature Reserve. The morning walk of 3 miles follows the remains of the Runcorn and Latchford canal, mainly on the reserve, finishing at a canalside hostelry serving J W Lees beers. We then return to the nature reserve on a pleasant stretch of the Bridgewater between Stockton Heath and Moore, a further 3 miles. There will also be parts of the Manchester Ship canal to be seen as it runs between the two canals. There is an optional short loop at the end of the walk with more remains of the Runcorn and Latchford.
Meet at 10 a.m. Moore Nature Reserve Car Park, Lapwing Lane, Penketh, Cheshire, Warrington WA4 6XE. What 3 Words: song.shady.headed, grid ref: 588855.
The lunch stop is pretty much the half way point of the walk at The London Bridge Inn, Stockton Heath:
