Take a guided tour through Holmes Chapel to learn about the history of the village where Harry Styles grew up.

The Holmes Chapel Partnership presents a guided walking tour of Holmes Chapel. 

You will be taken to the world famous Mandeville's bakery, not just becuase they have the best bread but because that's where Harry Styles worked when he first appeared on our screens in the X Factor TV show. You'll then head to the Twemlow viaduct, better known as Harry's Wall due to the thousands of messages that have been left there for the man himself. 

HIGHLIGHTS: 

- Take a selfie with a young Harry Styles in Mandevilles bakery 

- Marvel at the imposing structure that is the Twemlow Viaduct and read all the messages to Harry Styles that have been left there.  

- Bring a pre-written message to leave at the Train Station, which will be added to the visitor books there and passed on to Harry's Dad!

Meeting point:

Your tour will start at Holmes Chapel Train Station.  

PLEASE NOTE: It is advised you book your tour at least a week in advance. Tours will only run with a minimum of 6 people. You will be given 48 hrs notice if ticket sales are low for the tour you have booked onto. If sales increase to 6 people or over, the tour will go ahead and you will be notified accordingly. Full refunds will be given at 24 hrs notice if no further tickets are sold for your tour.

The route down to the viaduct is over fields and can be very muddy. There is no shelter from the weather so please wear suitable clothing and footwear. You will need to be able to climb over several stiles on this tour so it is unsuitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs or anyone with mobility issues. We do not recommend this tour for anyone under the age of 4 years old. Anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who is over 18 years old. Dogs are not allowed on the tour. 

Writing on the Viaduct is a criminal offence, and many visitors struggle to find space to write a message. The tour includes a slate heart for you to write your message on and leave at Harry's Wall.

We recommend you aim to arrive 15 minutes before your tour is due to start.

TOUR FAQs:

How long will the Tour last?

We estimate 2.5-3 hours for the Tour but also recommend taking some time afterwards to explore Holmes Chapel village centre.

 

Where does the Tour depart from?

The Tour will depart from Holmes Chapel Train Station which is conveniently located opposite the Community Centre where you will find a cafe for refreshments and toilet facilities.  

 

What should I wear?

Cheshire is renowned for its changeable weather.  We recommend practical outfits for a day in the countryside plus strong, ideally waterproof shoes and coats.  The walk to the Viaduct includes a path through open fields which can get muddy and slippery.  Kissing gates and stiles will also need to be traversed.  Attendees will be loaned high viz jackets, walking poles and shoe covers at Sam Dales, if required.

 

I’m travelling with a suitcase where can I leave it?

Our friends at Dales will kindly store any bags and luggage for free while you are on the Tour and if you wish to spend time more time in the village afterwards.  Dales is open until 5pm Mon-Fri and until 4pm on Saturdays.

Will I be able to write on the Twemlow Viaduct on the tour?

Twemlow Viaduct is a Grade II listed structure owned by Network Rail. It is a criminal offence to deface it and visitors struggle to find a space to add their own message to the viaduct. A slate heart that you can decorate and leave at the Viaduct is provided as part of the tour.

 

What is the Country Code?

Echoing Harry’s message to ‘treat people with kindness’, Holmes Chapel Partnership is asking Tour attendees to follow the Country Code and be respectful when traversing the walk to Twemlow Viaduct which is across working farmland.  Straying from the guided path and littering can be harmful, and even fatal, to livestock.

 

A briefing on the Country Code will be provided during each Tour and can also be found here: Countryside_Code_A5.pdf (publishing.service.gov.uk)

 

What are stiles and kissing gates?

Stiles and kissing gates are structures commonly found in rural areas, especially in the countryside of the United Kingdom. They serve as a way for pedestrians to cross over fences, walls, or other barriers while keeping livestock contained.  The walk to Twemlow Viaduct includes stiles, a short bridge across the River Dane and a kissing gate.  The Tour Guides will happily demonstrate how to use all of these, to those unfamiliar.  

Please be aware barbed wire is used to fence livestock around Twemlow Viaduct.  This is very sharp galvanised steel. Please do not attempt to cross it.
