“There are a number of ways you can get onto the nature reserve, we find the easiest is to access it via Brookburn rd, just off from Beech rd. This is a great place to wonder along the river Ees which joins up with the River Mersey. Great place to go for a jog or walk with the dog. ”

“There are many reasons why The Quays should be at the top of your 'must see' list when you're in Manchester and Salford. This stunning waterfront destination has grown out of the once derelict docklands of the Salford and Trafford Quays area, transformed from desolate wasteland into a place where some of the country's most iconic buildings (both The Lowry and Imperial War Museum North are RIBA award winners) stand with their neighbours to provide a place where culture, sport, shopping and a lot more come together. And they're all within walking distance of each other.”
