Leisure and Outdoors

If you love the outdoor life, then Edgworth, Turton and Entwistle are most definitely for you. The area is a mecca for walkers and cyclists with a rich variety of habitats and local wildlife punctuated of course by obligatory stops at a range of traditional local watering holes. The trails around the Wayoh and Entwistle reservoirs are particular favourites with the locals who often call in at the famous Strawberry Duck for its fine food and cask ales. At the heart of the village is the cricket club which really does attract a huge following and an opportunity to catch up on the team’s performance as well as local gossip and there are a number of good pubs and restaurants all within walking distance to work off those extra calories on a Sunday afternoon.
