Living inBeswick

Grey Mare Lane has a few local shops, a post office and a regular market with a variety of stalls. 'East Manchester town centre' just half a mile away between Alan Turing Way and Ashton New Road includes an Asda superstore and smaller local shops and facilities.

There's a great range of excellent facilities on the doorstep around the City of Manchester stadium and the Sportcity complex - including athletics, squash and tennis, and the national velodrome cycling centre just off Bank Street.

There are regular buses along Ashton New Road and Ashton Old Road - the vibrant city centre, with its shops, entertainment and leisure facilities is just a few minutes journey.

A new Metrolink line will bring frequent, speedy trams close to the area with stops at Holt Town (Ashton New Road), Sportcity, and the velodrome. The line will bring better facilities, and jobs, within easier reach.
