Reddish Vale Country Park …

A few days ago we visited one of the attractions that really is right on our doorstep and one that despite its proximity to home we haven’t been to for a good number of years – Reddish Vale Country Park.

Reddish Vale is located in the Tame Valley in Greater Manchester and is around 160 hectares in size and pretty much runs alongside the River Tame. There are plenty of well maintained paths and bridleways, a couple of millponds to wander around and all home to a good variety of wildlife – we saw swans, cormorant, coots, ducks, geese and robins and I understand that grebes, sand martins and kingfishers are also about. All in all it’s well worth visiting and a place that we will be returning to.
