M6 Junction 28 or 29 Cuerden Valley Park, Lancashire

Description

Cuerden Valley Park is hugely popular with dog walkers, and the bright-eyed, waggy tailed dogs Jem met made it clear that this is a piece of canine heaven.

The main path from the car park is gravelled, so this is a good option for wet days if you're trying to keep your feet dry.

Canine aquanauts will appreciate a swim in the small, clean River Lostock which runs to the left of a grass path to the left of the main gravel track.

Details

Five  car parks in all, these directions are to the Wigan Road P&D car park, (6ft 6 height restriction). Overspill car park in nearby Back Lane. Visitor centre, WC, vending machine drinks. Picnic supplies available from Sainsburys, located to the west of the A6/A49 junction.

Dog poo bins in the car park.

Walk

Cuerden Valley Park is hugely popular with dog walkers, and the bright-eyed, waggy tailed dogs Jem met made it clear that this is a piece of canine heaven.

The main path from the car park is gravelled, so this is a good option for wet days if the wellies have been forgotten.

Canine aquanauts will appreciate a swim in the small, clean River Lostock which runs to the left of a grass path to the left of the main gravel track. The gravel track is shared with cyclists, so the grass path is a good option if you want to avoid the bikes.

To reach the visitor centre, follow the gravel track to a point where it crosses the river, and the visitor centre is signed.

From the Wigan road car park it takes a good 10 minutes to get to the main area of the park but is well worth it. We spent about 1 and a half hours here but that included a stop in the coffee shop for tea and cake. Marley and Daisy were very happy with plenty of wooded areas to sniff and ponds and steams to paddle and swim in. Everyone we met was very friendly both on the walk and in the Sue Ryder coffee shop both the tea and coffee cake was delicious and would recommend a welcome refreshment break.
