This walk offers lovely views of Bradshaw Hall. See Combs Moss and Reservoir and take in Eccles Pike with its full panorama.
Bradshaw Hall dates back at least to the 12th century and remained in the ownership of the same family for 800 years. It became two farmhouses and in the 18th century, many of the windows were bricked up to avoid the window tax. In the 1960’s the Hall was carefully restored. Opposite the gateway, note the old trackway leading back up the hill to join the road over Eccles Pike, which would have been the main entrance.
