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.
