A beautifully landscaped public parkland linear return walk alongside the enchanting river Bollin on wide, hard and smooth paths. Known as The Carrs this is the most delightful and popular walk in the town. It starts from an excellent parish hall car park, where an ice cream van is normally parked and there are no gates or stiles. Foot bridges are all sturdy and wide, and the route is quite flat and very easy walking. It's particularly suitable for wheelchairs which can be used without assistance, but if you do have assistance, you will be able to navigate the circular version of the walk which brings you back over a meadow and playing fields on your return. Instructions for this are also included in the directions below. Note that there is a small charge for using the car park. This is a shorter version of walk 8384.

This walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between, it is also excellent for dogs, wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled and there will be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. In addition to the ice cream van the parish hall is alongside the car park where they serve meals at lunchtime if the menu board is on display by the access gate to the walk, and there is also a nearby children's playground on the opposite side of the car park. Alongside the car park is a 20p toilets block and there are free toilets in the parish hall suitable for anyone disabled. There and numerous bench seats and picnic tables along the route, and an additional free car park at the far end of the walk.
