From the meadows and woods and valleys of the south to the high open moorland in the east, it is a countryside rich in heritage and Wildlife. Lying between the heart of Greater Manchester and the Peak District, Tameside's Countryside is special because of the variety of places there are to discover and enjoy. Three rivers, the Tame, Etherow and Medlock, meander their way through the borough, their riverside tracks and pathways take you through ancient woodland and wildflower meadows. A network of local and national trails, such as the Trans-Pennine Trail, Tameside Trail and Tame Valley Way, link wide open countryside to the lesser know urban sites, many providing a green oasis on the edge of towns.
This activity is organised and run by Tameside Countryside Service.
