Thanks for sharing this route, I’m planning to have a go at it shortly (maybe even this weekend) Will be either self supported or unsupported. 

Would love to give this a try as I live literally 2 minutes away from the tow path as it passes through Failsworth. Does anyone know if this rout goes all the way to Castlefeild basin? Lock 92? Thankyou
