Category:Manchester
Distance (miles)54
Overview

'The City of Manchester has 138 parks, 31 of which have been awarded green flag status and a walking route has now been identified that links these green spaces. The Green Corridor is made up of 14 routes with each route averaging 4 miles.' ALERT It seems the Manchester City Council - nor the body originally referenced here Getting Manchester Moving - no longer maintain a description of the Green Corridor on their Websites. Instead, we are referred to the Ramblers' Routes (Search 'Manchester green corridor' - but note that full details of at least some of the stages of the Corridor are only available to Ramblers' Members).
