Safe Walking
Irwell Sculpture Trail is often in open countryside so you will feel more comfortable if you use strong shoes or walking boots for the rougher ground. The weather can change so take waterproof and warm clothing. Some sections of the Trail have been improved, especially where they coincide with National Cycle Way 6, with easy to open gates. Other sections may have more uneven surfaces and gradients, be close to the river bank, or be prone to puddles and have tall vegetation (in season). Styles and narrow accessing gates may be encountered. Users with limited mobility may find parts of the trail a challenge. For further advice about safe walking vist: Ramblers Website

Please remember that everyone using the trail does so at their own risk and thinks of their own safety and that of any children for whom they are responsible.
