Lymm Railway Line

The Lymm Railway Line passes through the flat fertile farmland around Dunham Massey following the route of the former Warrington to Altrincham Railway. This line closed to passenger trains in 1962and to freight trains in 1985. Its tracks have been removed and it is now a well surfaced path open to pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.

We manage the section of the Lymm Railway Line that is in Trafford. This runs from the River Bollin to Oldfield Brow. This section of the Lymm Railway is also part of the Trans Pennine Trail.

Trans Pennine Trail

Trans Pennine Trail logoThe Trans Pennine Trail joins the East and West coasts of England via the hills of the Pennines. The route runs from South port to Horn sea taking in Liverpool and Hull on the way.Spurs run off to Chesterfield, Leeds, Sheffield and York. The total network is 345 miles (555 km) in length.

The Trans Pennine Trail is open to walkers and cyclists with many stretches also being open to horse-riders. This means that it is also suitable in many parts to wheelchair users and people walking with prams.

Part of the European Long Distance Footpath E8

The Trail also forms the English section of the European Long Distance Footpath E8 – which currently goes from the West coast of Ireland as far as the Polish-Ukrainian border. It is hoped that it will eventually go all the way to Istanbul in Turkey.
