A visit to Fletcher Moss Gardens

20130317_125024   A place we haven’t been to for a while is Fletcher Moss Gardens, which is based in West Didsbury, so we thought we would take Mickey, for a stroll out on Sunday. I’d forgotten how nice it was actually. For parking we went drove past the Didsbury pub and down by the church. We then walked straight down from this road, all the way down to Simon’s bridge 🙂  20130317_114854

At this bridge we took a left turn (if you were to turn right this would take you in the direction to Chorlton Water Park which I’ll mention another time)  and this will take you on the path alongside the River Mersey. On this path the football playing fields will be on the left so you could drop by here for a play of ball with your pooch. All you need to do then is just keep on the same path which will give you a good walk right up to Stenner Woods. 20130317_122057All the routes are sign posted so it will be difficult to get lost. Once you get to Stenner Woods, there will be a narrow wood bridge path so this may get difficult to cross if there is another group of people crossing in the other direction. This walk is highly recommended and there are signposted paths along the way and it would be advisable to take some decent walking shoes or wellies as it can get muddy especially after a spell of rain.
