The Carrs - Walks for All

About

This walk follows the River Bollin for just under a mile from Wilmslow town centre to Twinnies Bridge. The river meanders through picturesque parkland with footpath links into Styal Country Park and the Dean Valley. At both ends of the walk there is a route map sign detailing the walk and making suggestions of things to look out for such as grey herons, kingfishers, pipistrelle bats and brown trout.

DISTANCE: Just under 3km (2miles) there and back - just follow the river; it knows the way!

TIME: About 30 minutes to walk from one end to the other.

SURFACE: A 2.5m (8’) wide surfaced path throughout.

GRADIENTS: Essentially flat, with a 5m (51 /2 yds) long incline of 8.3% (1:12) on approach to the bridge near the Parish Hall end of the route.
