M/C, Bury & Bolton Canal Ride.

From Bury to The Meccano Bridge at Prestolee, Little Lever, along Manchester, Bury and Bolton Canal Tow-Paths. A good five or six mile walk or bike-ride. Imagine you’re at Radcliffe Canal Wharf near the Town Hall. The first video goes from there, along canal tow path to Withins Lane …

The second video brings you back from canal entrance path, along Hinds Lane near Bank Top, to Withins…

Next video takes you from Bank Top, along Hinds Lane to Daisyfield Greenway, Bury …

Imagine you’re back at Radcliffe Canal Wharf near Town Hall. Cross the main road and go down to the tow-path toward Little Lever. Following four video’s take you all the way, looking at a bridge or two as you pass… the first video’s a bit slow until after the cobbles.




Canal wharf is off Water Street, Radcliffe. From Spring Lane go along Banana Walk (opposite Metro Station) to Red Bridge and turn right along tow-path to Bury, or left to go to wharf. At Warth Bridge go along footpath by Archimedes Screw, under Lattice Rail Bridge, up the banking to Hinds Lane, turn right to Canal ‘entrance path’, a few yards toward Bury on the left. Access to canal at Withins Lane (Bridge) Radcliffe as well.
Final video is of a ride down Prestolee Road, from The Meccano Bridge, to the Manchester Canal arm after the locks, and a steep (it doesn’t look it in video) descent down to River Irwell at Ladyshore. Paths there are subject to land-slips and there are major Hogweed views by the river.
