Canal Walk: Marsden to Slaithewait

A half hour train ride from Manchester brings you to Marsden, a large village nestled in the Colne Valley of the Marsden and Meltham Moors. From the train station you can literally cross to the other side (over the bridge) and drop down onto the canal tow path for a delightful walk east towards Slaithewait (and the Handmade Bakery).

A simple, flat walk, straight forwards without decisions to be made about styles or forks in the road, without uphill struggles or downhill shin pain lets you fall into a rhythmic pace allowing space for the mind to relax and for full appreciation of the stunning surroundings.
