E) Friday - meet 9.45am: St Matthews Church Hall Stretford

 St Matthews, Stretford, is an excellent walk centre where the choir vestry in the church grounds provides pre-walk registration and after-walk refreshment. It has a small car park but there is a free, 3 hour-stay, car park in the shopping centre virtually next door. It has easy access to Stretford Meadows in a westerly direction and off-road access to the Mersey Valley/Turn Moss/Ivy Green if we walk east. Also the Bridgewater Canal can be used for reaching Crossford Bridge playing fields (south) and Waters Meet (north). Normally, two walks will be on offer with a slower, shorter (2 mile or less) and a faster, longer route (around 3 miles). Walking surfaces vary from the metalled surface of Hawthorne Lane to the softer, compacted earth of the river bank so boots are not essential but strong, stout shoes are recommended. A small team of WfH trained leaders ensure a variety of local walks through the seasons.

This walk will cover the areas served by the Delamere Medical Centre, Old Trafford Medical Practice and Brooks Bar Medical Centre

St. Matthews Community Hall, Manchester, Greater Manchester, M32 9AJ
