Nor does it delve into the heartland to explore all that Dorset has to offer, for to do that would turn this walk into one of epic proportions.'

The Thirlmere Pipeline 'was built by Manchester Corporation Water Works to relieve the problem of an ever growing need by industry and people in the Manchester area in the latter part of the 19th century. The Thirlmere Way 'broadly follows the path of the pipeline from sink to source, starting at Heaton Park, Manchester and ending, not surprisingly, at Thirlmere'.
