If you are planning on visiting the East Lancashire Railway this weekend please note that a stretch of the M66 will be closed.

Traffic travelling towards Manchester from the A56 junctions with the A682 in Rawtenstall and Manchester Road in Haslingden to Junction 1 at Ramsbottom, will be affected with diversions in place.

If visiting us from the south, it is recommended that you use the M62 to get to Heywood Station where there is FREE parking or use Metrolink tram services to Bury.

For more information on the road closures visit the Highways Agency website.
