31/07 – Winter Hill

Having been on a few smaller walks, Sale Arts Trail and Sale Water Park, we’ve decided that it’s about time we went to the top of a hill. During the Ramsbottom walk we noticed a hill even closer to Manchester with large masts on it, this was Winter Hill. After a little research (looking at a map) we realised it’s the hill behind the popular visitor attraction, Rivington Pike… the following plan was formed.
