Clayton Vale

Clayton Vale Local Nature Reserve is a fantastic green area of reclaimed urban countryside. Originally a quiet river valley, the Vale was changed dramatically during the industrial period. However since being redeveloped in the 1980’s this 140 acre site is once again a wonderful place to visit. Much loved by walkers and families, the area is teeming with wildlife. And it is perfect for a bike ride. Enjoy this little peace of countryside right in the heart of east Manchester.
