Although it is only six miles East of Manchester city centre, Dukinfield has been largely overlooked by property investors. The main reason for this is that it is not on the Metrolink. Now, however, the expansion of Manchester airport and the growth in remote and hybrid working has put Dukinfield very firmly on the property-investment map.
Even without the Metrolink, Dukinfield is already popular with families mainly due to its good nurseries and schools (both primary and secondary). The area has a decent range of everyday services and is only a short bus (or car) trip from Ashton-under-Lyne which offers more facilities and the Metrolink.
Dukinfield is situated on the edge of the Cheshire Plain which grew from a small village to a large town thanks to a boom brought about by the cotton and coal industries. It remains a popular place to live thanks to its easy access to places such as Stockport, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester. Dukinfield is twinned with Champagnole in France and has several blue plaques dotted around the town to commemorate the notable people that originate from the area.
Dukinfield Town Hall is certainly a sight to see and the surrounding park climbs the start of the first hill off the Cheshire Plain, giving great views of Manchester City Centre. Dukinfield is also home to Old Hall Chapel which claims to be the first independent church in the 17th century.There is also a canal junction to visit which is the meeting point of the Peak Forest, Ashton and Huddersfield Narrow Canals.
Dukinfield Cricket Club, Rugby Union club and Dukinfield AFC provides sports lovers with something to watch and play, and Blocksage’s Playing Fields offers plenty of open space.
If you are looking for a quieter time, the town also has a library, shopping precinct and fitness centre complete with an indoor running track.
If you love Indian food then there is plenty to tickle your taste buds in Dukinfield. There are also family friendly restaurants such as the Angel Inn and the Globe Canteen & Coffee. For something more continental, there are Greek and Italian restaurants for you to enjoy, and a great range of pubs and takeaways. Whether you are looking for breakfast or a late-night takeaway Dukinfeld can accommodate your needs.
