GMFRS Training and Safety Centre
Hinds Lane
BL8 2GN (Sat Nav use BL8 2AL)

The GMFRS Training and Safety Centre is approximately a 15 minute walk from the Bury Interchange. The most direct route is via a footpath from Bridge Road. Once you pass the High School buildings on your left, take the left fork of the path down the hill to access the pedestrian bridge to the Centre (not the right fork up onto the viaduct).

Alternatively, you can stay walking on the main road – Jubilee Way/Bolton Road, away from The Rock in Bury. When you walk past Domino’s, take the next left down Arthur Street and follow the road all the way down. You will pass the security lodge, carry walking down and take the next left to our main entrance. You can press the button to reception and someone will open the gate.

There is plenty of cycle parking outside the main entrance. NCN6 passes over the viaduct outside the Centre. To access the Centre, take the fork of the path from the viaduct on the east side of the Irwell to access the pedestrian bridge over the river to the Centre.

Bury Interchange is accessible by Metrolink and bus.
