Bridgewater Way

The Bridgewater Way is a regeneration project that will create a 65km/39 mile leisure route for walkers and cyclists along the historic Bridgewater Canal. The project is a fresh approach to the use of the towpath as a connection between communities around the Mersey Basin and the North West.

Proposals include a programme of regeneration and renewal introducing:

  • New access points and a wide surface for new uses including cycling
  • Focal points, public arts and heritage interpretation and programmes
  • A safer and more appealing route

The Bridgewater Way is being promoted by the Bridgewater Canal Trust, a partnership which comprises 8 local authorities and The Manchester Ship Canal Company (part of the Peel Holdings Group).
