'If you live within the mass conurbations of Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester and want somewhere idyllic to escape too then Risley Moss is ideal, especially on a quiet weekday. The Visitor Centre, Facilities, Woodland Hides and Picnic Areas are all disable friendly. It is also really easy to find just off the M62.'

Overview

'Walking Day is held in high esteem by Warrington people ... Initially, it is understood that mainly members of the Church of England took part, but in 1857 the first record of Roman Catholic scholars joining in with the celebrations of Walking Day was reported in the Warrington Guardian. However, until 1908 the different religious denominations followed a separate route from the Church of England procession. Although in 1909 the same route was used by all denominations, the non-conformists and Roman Catholics did not assemble in Bank Park, nor take part in a march past the Town Hall. Eventually, in 1920 all participants in the procession came together to proclaim a joint acknowledgement of Christianity.' Held Early July.
