Manchester Airport to Morley Green (4.7 miles)
This walk starts at the big roundabout on Altrincham Road just before the airport tunnels. Park your car along the lane up from the Holiday Inn. This little road fills up with cars very quickly at weekends. There are some great views of the airport along the route and a constant stream of aircraft to view.
Take the footpath up from the roundabout and follow the route along the edge of the runway for a quarter of a mile or so. Spend some time watching the aeroplanes taking off and landing.
The walk continues down Woodend Lane before crossing fields to Blakeley Lane and across more fields to Burleyhurst Lane. There are some nice cottages along the way.
Once into Morley Green turn left into Morley Green Road and take a left down Dooley’s Lane. The route follows the River Bollin and eventually returns back to the airfield. Turn right at the airfield and back to the start of the walk.
