    Mosesgate winter wonderland

    Moses gate country park is situated between Farnworth and Little Lever. There are three lodges in all. Located to the far end of mainlodge is is Rock Hall which was erected in 1920 by Thomas Bonsor Crompton. Today its home to the Vistor centre.
    Apart from the Lodges you can follow the canal that runs to the near by town of Radcliffe. On a summers day you get some wonderful views of the Irewell Valley and winter its very pretty.

    Kids at play

    On a nice sunny day head out of the town centre to Bobby Haywards park. Plenty for kids of any age, slides, swings,climing frames, sand pits and musical equipment. Ice cream and coffee, and you can have a great picnic on the grassy embankments

    Summer stroll

    A Walk in the Park

    Take the old bread and have a super relaxing afternoon down at the park, feeding the many swans that come back here year after year, not to mention the huge ammount of ducks and other water fowl, even a couple of herons have been known to nest here

    Canal bank

    Stroll along the old canal through Little Lever and head out towards Bury, it is believed that this canal will be restored to its former glory one day but as yet a date hasnt been given. Nice for fishermen and walker alike with plenty to see in around the water.

    Turton Tower

    I dont know too much about this "tower" only that in the summer months they have had re-enactments there, with people dressed in authentic clothing carrying muskets etc, with court jesters and maidens. Thats all I can tell you, and that it has a small cafe.

    Country Park

    3 lovely lakes, loads of wildlife, kayaking on the river, escorted rambles along the canal, fishing in the canal and even model boating in summer, what more could you wish for on a nice summer day?

    The Jumbles

    If you enjoy walking/rambling try the Jumbles, you can follow the path around the lake, or better still take a picnic, lots of places to sit and whatch the world go bye.

    Can you spot the TV mast?

    You are best driving up Winter Hill then step out and admire the views. Winter Hill is home for the TV mast which can be seen for miles around

    Barrow Bridge is a very picturesque part of Bolton, it used to have a large mill there now only the chimney stands, proud.
