The cafe at the start,or finish, of your walk is good with terrace for sunny days. The walk to the weir and beyond is very pleasant, but, the water at the start between the cafe and the garden centre is a disgrace.It is filthy and smelly in hot weather. Stockport council are said to aware of it but haven't acted.

came here years ago and it was beautiful. Recently I decided to visit to go on a dog walk and the side walk had bird feces everywhere - not very pleasant but it is quite a nice walk.

Three of us went for a visit to blow away the excesses of the New Year celebrations. A lot of people obviously had the same idea. Although the car park was very busy once you left there and headed into the country there was lots of space. Young couples were there with their children and others were walking their dogs.... More

Visited Bank Holiday Monday and went to get food in the cafe at 1.55 pm. In queue for 20 mins and when finally being served told hot food had stopped from 2 pm. I asked where the sign was and said I'd been waiting 20 mins. The staff member was so arrogant and rude and rather than trying to placate... More

A lovely place for an easy walk around the water, although there are tracks leading up into the woods for the more energetic. Beautiful birds to feed and so tame, bird feed can be purchased from the cafe or visitors centre. Toilets on site, reasonable priced parking, beware of the dog dirt at the start of the walk on the...

Nice walks in different kinds of weather, of course make sure you have wellingtons on if its been raining, and be careful of the ducks nesting on the grass banks

On arriving at the main car park you encounter water fowl, children and adults feeding them and, on occasions, the odd dinghy or model boat on the 'lake' - formerly a mill pond. Further away from this area, walking alongside the river and up into the woods, you will be able to spend a peaceful hour climbing into the countryside,... More
