Walking and Cycling
Please be aware that we are located a short distance outside of Stockport Town Centre. It takes around 30-40 minutes to walk from the town centre to Welkin Mill.
The majority of the walk is on well lit public footpaths, but Welkin Road is unadopted and does not have street lighting. We've never had any reports of safety issues in the 6+ years we've been here (our staff walk it daily!), but you may wish to consider a taxi from the town centre.
The cycling route from Stockport town centre is the same as the walking route and generally takes 10-15 minutes.
Bredbury train station is located in the opposite direction and is also approximately 30-40 minutes walk or 10-15 minutes cycle distance.
Unfortunately there is not currently designated cycle parking at Welkin Mill. This is something that we are working with our landlord to try and introduce. In the mean time, you are able to lock your bike onto the railings near the main gates of the mill. We regret that we cannot accept any responsibility for bikes left outside.
Stockport is very well connected, the railway station in the town centre is serviced by main line and local stopping trains.
Bredbury station is also serviced by trains between Manchester Piccadilly and New Mills Central.
