Manifold Way

Staffordshire

This trail is an easy route being on a tarmacadam track and minor roads between Waterhouses and Hulme End. The route has been open since the 1930s when the railway closed, and is probably the earliest case of a disused railway line being converted to a walkers' and cyclists' route.
