How to get there
Remember, although this is listed with a Stockport Postcode, the venue
for this event is within the M60, and closer to Manchester City Centre
than Didsbury, with very frequent train and bus links, plus easy access
to major routes into Manchester and Stockport.
* By Train
Take the train from either Stockport (STP) or Manchester Piccadilly
(MAN) to Heaton Chapel (HTC) train station which is approximately a 15
minute walk from the pub, or you can also get the train to Reddish
North (RDN) station from Manchester Piccadilly, which is about a 30
minute walk away.
* By Bus
If you want to get the bus, the 42A and 173 buses go right past the pub
and the mill, while the 203 bus stops just up the road (at Holdsworth
Square) and the 192 stops on Stockport Road (the A6).
