Woolson New Cut greenway. New tarmac surface, but not really wide enough.

Black Bear park now surfaced - addresses the step. The ramp up to Kingsway could still do to be wider.

Last stretch of Black Bear Park greenway finally gets a tarmac surface. Unfortunately the anti-cycle barrier is #84821 wasn't removed while they were at it.

Link from Black Bear Park to Maple Grove. There used to be an obstructive "A Frame" barrier here - the two wooden posts are much easier to negotiate - though completely pointless.


Pointless barrier #58753 now has a bypass. The track is still steep and poorly surfaced.

Cycleway. 3.5m wide, smooth tarmac and lit. Access control is a single bollard. Much more civilised than #83626

Path along new food defences at Woolston. Gravel surface.

Birchwood to Sankey Way cycle route crosses the busy A574 Cromwell Avenue at an unprotected crossing.

A short, narrow, green mandatory cycle lane on a roundabout on the A574 Cromwell Avenue

Fences protect the side of the greenway where it crosses a ditch. They should really be set back 0.5m to maintain the full effective width.

Birchwood to Sankey Way: 3m wide unlit greenway follows a winding route through Sankey Valley Park.

Narow, poor quality tarmac path. Unfortunately no connection to Birchwood Bolulevard - just a high fence.

Toucan crossing with a sharp fenced zig-zag at the central reservation

Whittle Brook Greenway. There is a tarmac path under the leaves

Route crossing Whittle Avenue under the railway bridge - an alternative to the signed route via the toucan crossing #85674.

toucan crossing

Warrington Strategeic Cycle Route 1 goes under Cromwell Avenue via a bridge

Sankey Way

Sankey Valley Park greenway. A fairly narrow tarmac surface, but OK for light useage.

Standard width (2m wide) cycle lane. Unfortunately this tapers down to a very narrow lane #85633 as it crosses the railway bridge.

steep zig-zag decent to Woolston Weir

narrow rough track

Track following north side of the Manchester Ship Canal

rough surface, but passable on a road bike

Potential route under railway bridge enables cyclist to access Warrington town centre from the south avoiding Bridge Foot gyratory. Tends to flood at very high tides.

very narrow and poorly surfaced cycleway. Jan 2017: This section has now been upgraded to a 3m wide tarmac (not very smooth) path.

Woolston Weir. Cycle route crosses the Mersey here, providing a useful (if a bit rough in places) route between Woolston and Latchford.

Woolston New Cut

Warrington Waters Greenway - tarmac surface is being encroached by vegetation

Warrington Waters Greenway constructed as part of the Mersey flood defence works. Well surfaced, but too narrow at this point.

Warrington Waters Greenway. Constructed as part of the recent Mersey flood defences. Well surfaced, but a bit narrow in parts

Separate steps for pedestrians and ramp for cyclists. Shame about the surface quality.

Cycle bridge. I'm not sure how the expense was justified being as how Barnard Street crosses a perfectly acceptable bridge imediately to the north.

This absurd semi-circular cycle path featured in Warrington Cycle Campaign's Facility of the Month in 2001: It is so utterly useless it gets no traffic at all ... [more]

Green lane - old farm track with a hard core surface. Makes for a direct route between Stockton Heath and Appleton Thorn, but not suitable for year round commuting.

A wide section of path, but very dusty in dry conditions.

NCN 62 adjacent to St Helens Canal
