Room with a view.

Here is a photo looking down Stockport Road , taken from the Werneth pub balcony .
Another pub seems destined to bite the dust looking at the for sale sign . Sad times.

I'd love to see a photo of the Buxton,Our relatives took us there for a lovely meal a couple of years ago, I just can't picture the locatiion of the Werneth at the moment, it's been a long hot day.

I'd like to see a photo of the Buxton, We dined there with family on our last visit, very nice indeed. I believe I've visited most of the pubs recently mentioned, loved the Ring o Bells years ago.

The Werneth is on Stockport Road at the side of Treacle Brow. If you walk up there to its junction with mottram Old Road, you will see the Buxton to the right on the opposite side facing GX village.
