restored my faith in human nature, i hope you tasted the famous black puddings while there.
if you go again, head down to burrs country park, and just outside the cc site, o/night there midweek this time of year on the cobbled car park, 20 min walk to market along side of river, or bus 5 mins. avoid w/ends to busy with walkers.

Could also have mentioned that there is a pub (The Brown Cow) within 100 yds of the cobbled parking area that does meals and also that the Irwell Valley Way passes right past the cobbled area which gives walks not only into Bury in one direction but through Summerseat into Ramsbottom in the other direction.

Glad you enjoyed Bury, did warn you that the car parks all have barriers, but we market traders have an understanding with the wardens that cover that car park. The barrier is left open on market days, and you can take up 2 spaces as long as you put 2 tickets on the van, a bit dear but needs must.
There are 19 coach parking places on the roads near the college, dont park a motorhome there, it will get a ticket.
But the wardens can be very helpful, before Xmas there were 30 coaches turned up on 1 Wed, they allowed them to park on the double yellows in the streets around Asda, putting a note on each to make sure no over keen copper ticketed them.
The market is a good day out but just a pity its on the wrong side of the Yorks Lancs border

In the early days of my adventure I spent a couple of days on Burrs CC site, My daughter was studying at Salford.

She tapped me up for an evening meal which I think was at the Brown Cow.

Good value ,nice atmosphere, and the country park itself interesting watching the canoeing on the Irwell.

Wrong side of the big hill perhaps:rolleyes:;), But well worth a visit if you should find yourself in this part of the world.

If there are any of you steam buffs out there, the Irwell Valley railway goes past Burrs Park. If its a nice day you can sit in the Brown Cow garden area and watch the steam trains go past most weekends (occasionally they have diesel weekends but it is usually steam)

Why struggle on town center car park when at the side of bye-pass at Tesco, parking is free, masses of space. and a short walk back into town center.

We used to love going to Bury Market when the kids were little many moons ago. Black Puddings boiling in those big tubs with lots of mustard......

New complex is now open. Also if any of you have children/grandchildren of a certain age, this bank holiday Monday is 'teddy bears picknic' weekend at Nuttall Park in Ramsbottom. Any children turning up with a teddy bear (and an adult) gets a free ride on the East Lancs railway (from any of the stations I believe) to Ramsbottom Station, then walk to Nuttall park (about half a mile), where there is plenty going on
