A walk near Lymefield Garden Centre

Walking around Broadbottom from Lymefield

In Winter, there is no better place for new ideas than by going on a walk outside your door.

At Lymefield Garden Centre, we are lucky to find ourselves surrounded by woodland trails, river walks and hillside rambles which are just waiting to be explored.

Take a walk around the area near Lymefield & there is something rewarding to be found, regardless of the time of year. There is fantastic wildlife including an elusive deer population, a great bird population and plenty of British flora and many trees. Creating sights of outstanding natural beauty which every path you take.

A single route from Lymefield Garden Centre is the Broadbottom Circular walk.

This route takes in the very best of Broadbottom, from the lowland areas where we find ourselves here at Lymefield Garden Centre, alongside the River Etherow, up to the higher points where the whole valley can be admired.

The walk starts and finishes at Lymefield,

It begins through the Broad Mills heritage area and onto Summerbottom (don’t cross the bridge, go up the path with the handrail and turn left down Hodge Lane before turning back up the hill into Great Wood. Under the railway bridge and climb up to Hurst Clough. Cross Broadbottom Road and past the new houses on the ‘The Waggon’ pub site. Go up the road to Littlemoor Road. Cross a few stiles onto Pingot Lane and pass oak trees to Hague Road. Follow this road all the way back to Gorsey Brow, turn left onto the main road and go down the hill to Lymefield. For full details

click here for a downloadable descriptive path and map for this walk – and happy walking!

For more information about the Broadbottom and Tameside countryside, take a look at this helpful page over on Tameside Council’s website. 

From all the team at Lymefield Garden Centre, Farm Shop & Tea Room, we hope you enjoy this walk.
