ABC Wednesday: Q is for a queue outside the Queens

The Queens is an old coaching inn and had stables for horses. Once upon a time the stagecoaches leaving here would be on their way from Liverpool and Manchester and bound for Sheffield and Lincoln.

Now queueing up outside the Queens are two #201 Stagecoach buses on the route from Piccadilly, Manchester to John Kennedy Road, Hattersley. There should be about 12 minutes between them, but not infrequently you'll find two running in convey. They are at stop FF. A post office van is overtaking them.

For more "Q" posts visit ABC Wednesday.


  1. Looks quite busy as they queue up. Good Q word! Carver, ABC Wed. Team

  2. There's a John Kennedy Road? Named for the US JFK? THAT would be Interesting!
