This meeting is to start getting together a crowd to open a Hackspace in Stockport. Want to find out more about what a hackspace is? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackspace for (a few) more details, and consider looking around http://hackerspaces.org.

We'll be at the Grey Horse Public House on Saturday 18th July at 7pm. Please show your interest by clicking "I'm going" on the Upcoming Event Page at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/3073239

The meeting will discuss further the research we've done towards getting a permanent location, more discussions on funding, talking about our current and possible future projects, and much more (hopefully)!

Want to start the discussion already? Join the mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/stockporthackspace or drop in to the IRC channel on the Freenode network

How to get there


Remember, although this is listed with a Stockport Postcode, the venue for this event is within the M60, and closer to Manchester City Centre than Didsbury, with very frequent train and bus links, plus easy access to major routes into Manchester and Stockport.

  • By Train

Take the train from either Stockport (STP) or Manchester Piccadilly (MAN) to Heaton Chapel (HTC) train station which is approximately a 15 minute walk from the pub, or you can also get the train to Reddish North (RDN) station from Manchester Piccadilly, which is about a 30 minute walk away.

  • By Bus

If you want to get the bus, the 42A and 173 buses go right past the pub and the mill, while the 203 bus stops just up the road (at Holdsworth Square) and the 192 stops on Stockport Road (the A6).

There's also a third map at the top of the Upcoming web page where the venue is listed.

The pub has an attached carpark and there are lots of nearby side streets.
