Worsley Woods & Village


Trips and Adventures – 29 March 2018

We caught the bus from Piccadilly to meet our tour guide (Bruce) outside The Bridgewater pub in Worsley village. We decided to pop in and we dined on rump steaks with chips, peas, onion rings and onion gravy.

Later we walked along the canal towpath (minding the slutch) but it was very quiet as nobody was cruising that day. Bruce gave us a full and detailed tour of Worsley woods. He seemed to know an awful lot about the place! But all I can say is “What happens in Worsley woods stays in Worsley woods”.

There are lots of pretty cottages in Worsley village including the police station, which has been converted into a private cottage (“The Old Nick”).

After the walk we went for a sit-down at the Secret Garden for coffee and cake, before making our way back to Manchester.

Tony met up with Sandra and Jim for a “Pop Up Poetry” event run by the Age Friendly Collective at Manchester Art Gallery. Five or six people read poems (including Jim and Tony) in front of artworks in three galleries.

We enjoyed it so much I’m sure that we will be going to the next event – the Summer Gallery takeover – on Thursday 5 July 2018 from 5.30pm to 8.00pm.
