Cock Pub & Kitchen, Whaley Bridge


The traditional NW Group’s annual Pre-Christmas Lunch will be at the Cock Pub & Kitchen, 22 Buxton Road, Whaley Bridge, SK23 7JE commencing at 1.00pm. RCHS members from all regional groups, together with their guests, are most welcome to join us.

Non-walkers arriving by train should meet in the Whaley Bridge Station car park at 12.30 following the arrival of the 11.49 departure (for Buxton) from Manchester Piccadilly (dep Stockport 12:01). This will give sufficient time for non-walkers to walk along the main road or, alternatively, stroll the 500 yards to the venue along the bank of the River Goyt with parkland views over both the river and Toddbrook reservoir – built in 1831 as a feeder for the Peak Forest canal. Those travelling by car from the north via the A6 will find the pub on the left 500 yards south of the the railway station just after the Buxton Road railway bridge. If coming from Chapel-en-le-Frith, Buxton or Macclesfield the pub will be on the right just before the railway bridge.
Those interested in a two mile walk along the canal should plan to travel to New Mills Newtown on the 9:49 departure from Manchester Piccadilly (dep Stockport 10:01). It is possible to hire a narrow boat to cruise from New Mills to Whaley Bridge, via Bugsworth Basin if conditions are favourable. The cruising option, at £10 per person, will be available on a ‘first come; first served’ basis to the first 10 members to indicate interest.
We are also hoping to be able to look around the transhipment warehouse at Whaley Bridge: for non-walkers/non-cruisers, for this option, the 10:49 departure from Piccadilly (dep Stockport (11:01) is the recommended train.  For further information contact Roger Brice: tel. 01625 533959 or 07702 303242; e-mail rogerbrice@microton.net.
Reservations for the lunch should be made (to Roger Brice) by no later then 30th November, please. We may need to put a maximum on the number of diners.
