And if you are interested in the Whitworth Cycleway...

The Whitworth Cycleway opened in summer 2008.  It is the result of a number of projects and associations working together, with funding from Whitworth Town Council, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Environment Fund and a £128,000 grant from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund provided through Natural England.

The cycleway runs from Masseycroft, through Whitworth, Facit and Shawforth, and joins with the Britannia Greenway at the top of the town.  There is a 2km off-road section running from Barlow Bottoms to Britannia, and the existing route is being upgraded with new kerbs and access points.
