This is a splendid circular walk around the impressive grounds of Dunham Massey Hall, in Altrincham, Greater Manchester. You will pass through the magnificent deer park with its 17th century mill and the tranquil Island and Smithy pools. There is also the spectacular new Rose Garden and the Georgian Dunham Massey Hall to explore.
The Bridgewater Canal runs just past the estate and is a great way to extend your walk. You can pick up the Cheshire Ring Canal Walk and follow the towpath west to the pretty village of Lymm. Here you can enjoy a peaceful, waterside walk around the Lymm Dam.
If you head east along the canal you will soon come into Altrincham.
Just to the south of the estate you will find Rostherne Mere. The large mere is a great place for bird watching with several species of wildfowl to look out for on the water.
