The Cornerstones is located in the leafy suburb of Sale in South Manchester

Location is paramount to your visit to Manchester and the Cornerstones is ideally positioned; from a areal view were surrounded by four Motorways M6, M56, M60 & M62.

Coming from the North by Car

From what ever direction you come you can’t miss the M60 ring road; from the north leave the M60 at junction seven (J7) and follow the signs for Altrincham (ALL-TRING-HAM); you will come to a T junction at the end of the slip road; turn right on to the A56.

The Cornerstones is on the A56 2.5 miles down the road; however you need to locate the car park at the rear of the building so look out for the Vine pub on your left . Once past the pub you come to a set of traffic lights, turn right at the lights on to Harboro Way then take the first left on to Harboro Road, which is a dead end, however the last turning on the left is the Cornerstones car park.

Coming from the South by Car

Pick up the M56 and get off at J7; you’ll come to a large roundabout, follow the sign for Altrincham (ALL-TRING-HAM) on to A56. At this point if you where to set your mileomitter to zero the Cornerstones is 4.5 miles down the A56, which will put you out side the front of the building.
To get to the car park at the rear, go past the building and turn left at the first set of traffic lights, which are more or less in front of you when you pass the building, on to Harboro Way. Then take the first left on to Harboro Road, which is a dead end, however the last turning on the left is the Cornerstones car park.

If your coming by Train

Once you come in to Piccadilly or Victoria Station just ask a porter where you can pick up the Metro to Brooklands station.
When you arrive at Brooklands station the exit will point you in the direction of the car park, once in the car park turn left and walk over the bridge the train as just come under.
Walk down the road (Marsland Road) to the traffic lights at the bottom of the hill, cross the main road and turn left on to the road you’ve just crossed.
The Cornerstones Guest House is on the next corner. Altogether it’s just a 5 minute walk.

Getting into the City

You can drive in, but why bother there’s a bus stop just a few steps away from our front door where the 263 or 264 will take you into the hart of Manchester city centre.
Read ‘If your coming by Train’ backwards and that will get you into Manchester by Metro (Lazy)
The Metro is a train in the suburbs but comes up off the railway tracks and becomes a tram in the city streets so take a good look at where you want to be in the city and where’s the nearest tram stop.
