Clayton is less than three miles east of the city centre. It lies on Ashton New Road; from Bank Street to the border with Tameside. Most homes are between Ashton New Road and the open land at Clayton Vale. Ashton New Road is a major route into the city centre from the nearby M60 motorway around Manchester, so there's good access to other parts of the city and beyond. See rehousing area map (pdf).

Living in Clayton

'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.

Clayton is within reach of a great range of excellent facilities 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. Clayton Vale has a network of paths for walking, cycling and horse riding. There are picnic areas, fishing ponds and a visitor centre.

There are regular buses along Ashton New 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
