Sunday Stroll: Daisy Nook Horse Ride



This is a view of Daisy Nook Country Park not seen by many walkers as I had to step a couple of metres off the normal footpath to take this photo!

A horse ride or bridle path runs right through the Country Park and is well used by customers of the several stables and riding schools in the area. These rides are mostly separated from the footpaths to avoid conflict of interests. However, while enjoying my stroll, I looked through a gap in the hedge alongside the towpath of the Fairbottom Branch Canal and saw this delightful scene.

Who would have thought that this rural setting is less than two miles from the busy town centre of Ashton and less than three miles from Oldham?

  1. Quite peaceful and calm. Leisurely-looking. And very soft beautiful colors. Good job!

  2. A favourite haunt of mine when I was a teenager. It's been much improved since then! Used to love the Daisy Nook Easter Fair
