I think it’s fair to say that the majority of us haven’t explored Greater Manchester as much as we would like, so why not make this the year to tick off the top sights across the area?

I love discovering places back in #Stockport that had just been beyond my usual childhood hangabouts, the wrong side of the main road or off limits. The river #Mersey runs through Stockport – Heaton Mersey- before it gets to #Liverpool and the Irish Sea, and also makes for an amazing morning jog. @kidscan_uk #bemoremartyn #münchenhalbmarathon
