Car Parking

Car parking spaces are limited; parked reasonably carefully, it is possible to fit 7 cars onto the driveway in front of the building. Further parking is available on…

  • High Street (before the corner shop),
  • Sheffield Road (turn left past the church)
  • On Highbank Works (on Halton Street opposite the end of High Street – evening & weekends only)

Please DO NOT park on Knivton Street, itself

Food and drink locally available

Tea & Coffee is generally available within the building!

Snacks ranging from chocolate to hot bacon muffins are available from our favourite corner shop – Ashbank Stores – open most days from 10am (or earlier!) till late. Gaynor & William also sell milk & other drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) including tea & coffee if you can’t be bothered to brew your own!

Alternatively, you can walk further afield to Morrisons in Hyde.

There are also a number of local Chinese Chippys (Au Yeung on Mottram Road is pretty good).

Finally, between Au Yeung and Morrisons, you’ll find the Sportsman Pub which is CAMRA listed serving beers from the Rossendale Brewery as well as others. In addition, they do a cracking Pizza and have a Cuban Restaurant upstairs
