Walking the

Hollinwood Canal
This section of the website can be used in two ways:

   •   as a "virtual tour" of the canal, where you can see the
        entire route from the comfort of your computer

   •   as a walking guide which you can print out and take with
        you when you walk the route

The route starts at Fairfield Junction, in Droylsden, and goes northwards, through Daisy Nook Country Park, to Hollinwood. You can click here to work your way through the route from start to finish, or you can use the links below to go straight to particular sections.
