    Linnet Clough

    Anyone know about getting to Linnet Clough, Stockport, by train?
    Is it possible? How much walking is involved?

    Thanks

    Linnet Clough is in Mellor, a village in the Stockport postal area, not Stockport itself. Nearest station is in Marple Bridge

    I think how walkable it is depends on your idea of walkable!

    Matt,

    I did my Young Spokesperson training at Linnet Clough. (you'll love the course).

    I had to travel from London, to Stockport on a train (used virgin as it was the cheapest) but i don't know where you're coming from.

    I then got a lift from one of the people running the course, as it would have taken far longer to get trains from Stockport to Marple. On the way, we drove past Marple station, and I would say it is quite a walk. (Note, this was 16 months ago, so I could be wrong).

    It also depends on whether you are staying the weekend or not? (will you have kit?)

    I was lucky, because I was offered a lift from Stockport to Linnet Clough, but I doubt anyone would mind if you asked. (they're a nice bunch!)

    However you get there, I'm sure you'll have a great time once your there!

    1 day non-residential. According to thetrainline.com, it is possible to get fromn here (Colwyn Bay) to Marple changing at Manchester Piccadilly, after changing at chester, it is apparently 1.6 miles (according to Google maps), which is almost as far as my walk to school! So waalking shouldn't be a problem, but I'll check if it would be any quicker (no half hour wait) going to Stockport, and if it would be any easier time wise, I'll drop someone a line and find out if I can get a lift!

    Thanks
    Matthew

    That was my trouble, to get from Stockport to Marple, you had to go via Manchester Piccadilly. This would have taken more time, and because of the other timetables, I would have arrived an hour or so late. Therefore, for me, it was easier to get a lift. (It wasn't just me, there were a few of us who got lifts, so it worked out pretty well).

    Have fun!
