'Living history epitomises Ardwick, an area rich in architectural features and cultural heritage. Originally a small village and bounded by the River Medlock, Ardwick can trace its origins back to 1282. By the early 19th century, Ardwick was an elegant suburb and its Georgian splendour is still on show at Ardwick Green, alongside one of Manchester's oldest churches St Thomas's Church, built in 1741 ...'

'There are four circular walks which are colour coded, named (Hare, Gloucester Cattle, Skylark & Salmon) and are approximately 4.5 to 5 miles long, so allow about 2.5 hours for each one (or go crazy and do all four). The directions for all walks begin and end at the main map board, which is adjacent to the side wall of The Red Lion. All walks have kissing gates and bridges. It may be helpful to refer to the Ordnance Survey, Outdoor Leisure 14. What you see will vary from season to season. Some of the walks may be a little muddy at times but there will always be good cheer and hearty food and drink available back at The Red Lion when you return.'

'The Arun and Rother Connections (ARC) Project  'is a landscape-scale project being delivered by a partnership made up of seven organisations. The main aim of the project is to promote a rich and thriving river system where wildlife flourishes and where people value and enjoy the landscape and natural and cultural heritage of the Arun and Rother rivers and their surrounding environment in West Sussex ... The River Rother flows from Empshott in Hampshire, England, to Stopham in West Sussex, where it joins the River Arun.'

Colourful narrowboats, shy waterbirds, the splash of a fish, eerie reeds as they sway in the breeze, if you stay alert all sorts of sights and sounds will delight you. These two fully waymarked walks along the River Avon will not disappoint, whatever time of year you visit. There are no stiles to negotiate on either walk.'
