Back in Stalybridge ......... no 1 cheese pie, chips, mushy peas and a pint

Now it is sometime since we have been in Stalybridge.

Back in the 1970s when I lived in Ashton, a walk along Beaufort Road from our house on Raynham Street up past the park and down into Stalybridge was a must on a warm sunny Sunday.

That said there were those occasions when we never got further than the Sycamore which back then was still small rooms each with a distinctive character.

Today more often than not it’s the Buffet on Stalybridge railway station which takes our fancy and we have been known to turn it into an adventure and arrive in style from Manchester on the train.

So that seems a perfect reason to feature John Casey’s picture of the interior and kick start a few more stories on the town.*
