What's the ground like?


Getting to the ground by public transport

Buses: 16 / 41 / 263 / 264 run from Manchester Piccadilly bus station to Altrincham Interchange, (immediately outside the Metrolink station).

Metrolink: The Metrolink line from Manchester and Bury terminates at Altrincham.

From the front of Altrincham Interchange (for buses, trains and Metrolink trams), which lies behind the clock tower, Moss Lane is the first turning on the left. Since 3 November 2002 Moss Lane has been made one-way at the town centre end so there is now no vehicle access from the A538 main road (Railway Street/Stamford New Road) which runs through Altrincham. Vehicles must either follow the road route above or carry on southwards past Moss Lane a quarter of a mile, passing Altrincham Post Office (on right), and then turn left at the next set of proper traffic lights into Lloyd Street. After crossing the railway bridge, with Tesco on the left, turn first left (Manor Road) and proceed to the second set of two very closely sited traffic lights, where you turn right into Moss Lane. The ground is half a mile away on left, in front of a tall communications pylon, which can be seen from some distance away.

Continue to follow signs for Manchester Airport and at junction 3 of the M60 get into the inside two lanes and leave the M60 to join the M56. At junction 2 of the M56 do not follow the Altrincham sign but remain on the M56 following signs for the Airport. Do not leave the M56 at Manchester Airport but continue until junction 6.
