We are fortunate that Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club not only has easy access by car (being less than 2½ miles from the motorway network) but it also has excellent public transport links.
From the M62 Motorway (Junction 21)
Hollingworth Lake Sailing Club is situated alongside the B6225 Milnrow to Littleborough road. From Junction 21 on the M62 (Milnrow) turn left at the 2nd (from East) or 3rd (from West) exit roundabout (which is controlled by traffic lights) towards Milnrow (A640[N]). Follow the brown tourist signs to Hollingworth Lake for approximately two miles. This entails a right turn at the next set of traffic lights (just after Aldi), a left turn at the mini roundabout by The Bobbin pub and then another left turn at the top of the hill before the Gallows pub, following the B6225. At the next mini roundabout turn right and follow the road as it swings left (by the Beach Hotel) round a corner. The Sailing Club is on your right hand side in 150 metres, with access being through the Lake Bank car park. The Sailing Club is the building between the Rowing Club and the Beach Hotel.
