The south west most part of the Ashton Canal cycle route has reopened. It's only a short section between the Chips development and the ISIS offices, but it makes the route more pleasant and means you no longer have to use the a difficult ramp.
At this point the path has been moved slightly and the new bridge added where the canal is now joined to the marina development.
The cycle way then leaves the canal tow path at the ISIS offices.
About a mile up the canal, past MERCi to where the canal curves round the river, we saw a kingfisher this morning. This really is a lovely route.
