Moss Lane: How to Get There

By Road from North, South, East or West

  • Routes to Moss Lane by Road.

    Many thanks to Bill Coop for the excellent map and directions.

    By Public Transport

    From Manchester Piccadilly or Victoria railway stations, or Piccadilly Gardens bus station take the Metrolink tram service to Altrincham (NOT to Bury). This journey takes approximately half an hour. Metros run at frequencies of every 6 to 12 minutes. Buy your ticket from the platform machines before boarding.

    Exit Altrincham station on the bus station (Interchange) side. (This is to the right with your back to the Manchester direction). Turn immediately left after the booking office and proceed through the bus station and up the narrow inclined footpath to the junction with Moss Lane bridge. Turn left, over the railway bridge, and then walk straight on, past Tesco (on the right) and the Bridge Inn (on the left) for approximately eight minutes. The ground is on the left.

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

    On Foot

    From the front of Altrincham Interchange (for buses, trains and Metrolink trams), which lies behind the clock tower (pictured right), 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 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.

    Pedestrians can still turn up Moss Lane from the town centre (A538) and go over the railway bridge, after which there is a large Tesco on the right. Go straight on at cross roads and the ground is half a mile along Moss Lane on the left.
