Elmwood’s traditional New Year walk starts at the Jumbles Information centre, Bradshaw Road, Bolton BL2 4JS. There’s a small charge for parking, and café and toilet facilities are available.

The walk is about 5 miles and includes a couple of manageable gradients. The route goes  by Jumbles Reservoir, Turton Bottoms, Edgworth, Wayoh Reservoir, Chapel Town and Turton Tower.

Join the New Year regular walkers and meet old and new friends for this informal and enjoyable countryside event. Children as always must bring Mum and Dad, a silly hat and mince pies! Dogs are welcome, but do bring a dog lead.

Everyone dress for the weather, stout footwear, packed lunch and hot drinks. See Brian Bracegirdle for more information.
