Our walk takes us east to the countryside overlooking Brierfield and Nelson in the west. We first reach Higher Saxifield; then head north east towards historic Southfeld including Southfield Fold and reach Marsden Park via Higher Town House and Low Town House. We meander west through Marsden Park and head down Walton Lane towards the A56 for the mainline bus and get off near Prairie Field.

Pace of walk: we will set a gentle pace with regular breaks to catch your breath and enjoy the view.
