About this run route

Start / Finish

Buile Hill Mansion

A circular route starting from the centre of the park opposite Buile Hill Mansion. The route explores the undulating, informal parkland of the former Buile Hill estate. Please be aware the park can be busy particulary during weekends and Bank Holidays. Please show consideration for other park users especially young children. All footpaths within the park are used by service vehicles. During periods of heavy rainfall the tarmac footpaths do occasionly flood and can become slippery with ice and wet leaves. Due to the steep terrain this route is not recommended for wheelchair and pushchair users. Benches and rest areas are available throughout the park. 

Starting from the centre of the park next to Buile Hill Mansion the route heads north up the slope before turning left just before the Hart Hill/Manor Road entrance. The route then heads west down the slope passing the terrace of the fomer Hart Hill Mansion on the left before arriving at the Weaste Lane entrance. At this point  the route again turns left and follows the perimeter of the park. After 350m the route arrives at the lower Weaste Lane/Edward entrance. Taking a sharp left hand turn the route heads uphill past the Outdoor Gym and Buile Hill Park Hall and continues along the front of the Mansion and down the main drive towards the park's main entrance. Be aware the main drive is open to vehicles - please take care. Just before the junction with Eccles Old Road the route turns left and continues gently uphill along the perimeter footpath through a pleasantly wooded area before arriving at the Hart Hill/Manor Road entrance. At this point the route takes a sharp turn to the left and heads downhill and back towards Buile Hill Mansion.
