Footpaths around Rixton

Walks vary in length from 1.5 miles to 4.5 miles – all on level terrain. Boots or strong footwear recommended. Walks start from the lay-by on Manchester Road, Hollins Green. 

The No. 100 bus from Warrington and Manchester stops outside The Black Swan pub on Manchester Road near to the start of the walk. Walk leaflets include map, local illustrations and a few historical points of interest. Refreshments are available on route at: – The Black Swan and Ye Olde Red Lion pubs in Hollins Green – Hollins Green Community Shop – The LA Cafe, near Rixton Claypits Nature Reserve Walk. 

Leaflets are freely available to pick up from local facilities in Rixton-with-Glazebrook and also from Cadishead Library and the Hamilton Davies Trust in Cadishead. Alternatively walks can be downloaded from this website – see below.
