Reddish Vale Country Park :: SJ9092

Reddish Vale is mainly green space, comprising woodland, flat riverside meadows, sloping fields used to graze horses and a golf course. The Country Park was opened in 1985. A small car park and Visitor Centre are sited on a former industrial complex, including a calico printing works supplied with water from the river via mill ponds and reservoirs. Established in 1780, the works were at their peak between the 1860s and 1930s but had ceased printing by 1975, and have now been demolished

The modern day Country Park straddles the historic boundary between Lancashire and Cheshire, formed by the River Tame (Link ). The medieval township of Reddish lies to the west and the eastern side borders with Brinnington, previously part of the larger Dokenfeld Estate.

A number of footpaths, bridleways and cycle trails lead in all directions, with the more popular ones following the line of the river, both up and downstream. Also crossing the park are the Long distance routes, Trans-Pennine Trail and Midshires Way.
