Woodbank Community Food Hub
Woodbank Memorial Park
Enter the park from the South via Park Lane. Proceed through the barrier into the park and the site is the first gate on the right.
Just south of Stockport Town Centre, this location has great public transport links with the number 314 bus regularly leaving Stockport Bus Station for the nearby Turncroft Lane.
Although a steep cycle from Stockport through Vernon and Woodbank Parks, there are many quiet routes to us and secure bike locking on site.
There is a large free car park just 100 m from the site at the end of Edwin Street.
