Gorton Heritage Trail is located approximately 3 miles from the centre of Manchester and is situated on the banks of Gore Brook. It runs for approximately three quarters of a mile through the Gore Brook Valley Conservation Area, from Sunny Brow Park to Gorton Lower Reservoir.
The trail links up several areas that are rich in plants, trees, wildlife and history. It includes Sunny Brow Park, Lower Meadow wildflower meadow, Brookfield Church and 'dissenters graveyard', a butterfly garden, Foxfold, and Tanyard Brow.

The 'salt road' crosses the brook runs past the 'Vale Cottage' pub and then through foxfold, a wilder section of the trail!
