The Towing Path Guide is an attempt to show the canal as it is today. The guide has been divided into small sections based on convenient access points and the need to keep download times to an acceptable level. Several areas of the Towing Path, particularly in Salford have passed into private ownership and access is restricted. Please respect landowners rights and do not trespass or cause any damage. Your journey will be made easier if armed with a Greater Manchester A to Z Street Atlas edition 9A 1998 which is available from most paper shops within the area price £4.75.
