The GM Ringway walking trail will connect Greater Manchester’s 2.8 million residents with the natural and cultural heritage on their doorstep. Green in every way, all 20 stages of the 300-km (186-mile) route are designed to be accessed by public transport. The GM Ringway is a joint project of CPRE – the Countryside Charity and Ramblers, Britain’s walking charity. Thanks to National Lottery players, a Heritage Fund grant will allow the trail to be fully established over the next two years.
