Frodsham station is on the line between Manchester and North Wales, half way between Warrington (11 minutes) and Chester (13 minutes). Turn right at the bottom of the station approach, turn right again and bear east along the High Street for 500m and turn right into Fluin Lane.

Unfortunately buses replace trains between Manchester and Chester via Warrington.

The 08:30 from Manchester Piccadilly arrives at 10:20. The 08:59 from Chester arrives at 09:24 (the next one arrives 1 hour later).

Players from London can travel by the 07:30 from Euston, change at Warrington and arrive 10:20, and catch the 19:23 back via Warrington and Crewe, arrive Euston 22:45. As of 26th November advance fares for this are £20.50 each way.

Another option to avoid the buses is to travel to Runcorn on the Liverpool-Crewe line and either find someone coming to pick you up there or travel the four or five miles to Frodsham by taxi.

Frodsham can be reached via the M56. Leave at Junction 12, following signs to the A56 and continue on into Frodsham. Fluin Lane is the B5152 and runs south from the A56, immediately left after a footbridge over the road. There are signs to the Community Centre, which is on the right. There is a large free car park.


A list of nearby accommodation is available on request.
