Brief Description

Leaving Moore Nature Reserve the route takes you through open areas on good paths to reach the Bridgewater Canal. Leaving at the next bridge we climb up Keckwick Hill, a short but fairly steep ascent to reach the village of Daresbury. From here, taking the lane out of the village, we cross to Outer Wood and walk down the lane into Moore and continue a short distance on the towpath. From the canal we reach the village and the route takes us back to the Reserve. We enter the Reserve which has large areas of woodland, meadows, lakes and ponds and the many bird hides and feeding stations provide lots bird life. ( binoculars !) The reserve is well managed to support wildlife and interesting throughout the year.
