GM Ringway

Ever wanted to walk round the whole of Greater Manchester? I admit it may be a bit of a niche proposal. But then so is walking round the whole of London, and people do that.

At 186 miles long, the GM Ringway does just that (and indeed is longer than the London Loop despite Greater London being a tad bigger.) It all starts and ends in Manchester City Centre for no particularly obvious reason given it's a circular walking route.
