Unfortunately, a theatre is not one of them but we have put together a selection of what we hope are useful links below. Any suggestions are welcome.

TRAINS: Davenport station has trains to Manchester and Buxton. The journey to Manchester takes less than 20 minutes and costs less than you would pay to park your car in the city centre.


  • The 192 bus from Hazel Grove and Stepping Hill Hospital to Stockport and Manchester passes the Buxton Road gates every few minutes. The 192 night bus runs from Manchester to the Park gates until 02:30 on Thursday nights and 03:40 on Friday and Saturday nights.
  • The 378 bus linking Stockport and Bramhall stops outside the Bramhall Lane Gates.
  • Also the 309 bus and 310 bus to and from Cheadle.



  • There is a wide range of local shops on Bramhall Lane, just a short walk from the gates at the end of Devonshire Park Road.


  • The nearest decent-sized open space is Cale Green Park, somewhere between two and ten minutes walk from Davenport Park depending on your location and MPH.
  • Bramhall Park is also within walking distance and a big favourite with the national Park Run scheme.
  • Another popular spot is Mirlees Fields. The volunteers have done a great job in improving the paths and it has an easy route up Stepping Hill.
