Living in Crossacres

There are local shops on Hollyhedge Road, and it's just over a mile to the shops and services in Gatley village.

Most homes are less than a mile from Wythenshawe civic shopping centre, with its food hall and market. The centre also includes the Wythenshawe Forum; the place to come for leisure, learning and childcare. It includes a swimming pool, gym, sports hall and fitness centre, health centre, children's nursery and job centre.

There are regular buses to the city centre, and frequent trains to Manchester from Gatley station. Public transport would be even better with the planned extension of the Metrolink tram system to the airport.

Crossacres is next to Hollyhedge park where there are football pitches, a bowling club, nature area and children's play park.
