North West England Walks by car, bus and train
It describes walks that may be reached by public transport, mainly by using cheap off peak tickets. The walks take advantage of public transport to enable linear routes to be followed along canals, lakes and valleys from one destination to another by alighting at one place and returning from another without the need of a car. Alternative circular routes, are provided for car users with detailed advice on reaching the walk locations.
