About the event

Overview

This is one of the 20 stages of the GM Ringway – the new walking trail for Greater Manchester. Stage 5 takes us right to the edge of the Peak District via some very attractive landscapes. The route uses lovely paths to explore the National Trust’s Lyme Park estate and its famous hall. When Lyme Park is closed, you will need to follow the diversion north of the park directly to the main A6 road (cutting the route shorter by 2.5 miles / 4 km). Opening hours are shown on the National Trust website. Note that Lyme Park is also closed during very high winds. Please ensure that you will be able to complete all of the section through the National Trust estate (basically south of the rail line) during opening hours.The route can be followed, downloaded or printed using the mobile-friendly Plotaroute site. To use Plotaroute on your phone’s browser, simply click the map. Then, when you’re ready to start walking, click the tracker icon (bottom right) to show your position as you follow the route.

Please bear this in mind when planning your trip.
