The Manchester graticule is at latitude 53, longitude -2. It contains, in no particular order:

Manchester, Chester, Liverpool, St Helens, Preston, Bolton, Blackburn, Stockport, Macclesfield, Wigan as well as numerous other built up areas, including the greater parts of the Stoke-on-Trent and Wrexham areas. Water geohashes are rare, but the graticule does contain the estuaries of the Mersey and Ribble rivers, as well as a small part of Morecambe Bay. Anyone wishing to go exploring these risky bodies of waters should seek local expert safety advice. That said, there is the Leeds-Liverpool canal, which is reasonably safe.


put things about the odd quirks and idiosyncrasies that the graticule tends to have







  • TheGeorge hometown is a small town between Crewe and Northwich, comes back there every University Holiday.


  • _nod new to Geohashing.

Visiting Geohashers[edit]

  • Angel lives just off the northern edge, in Lancaster, but may occasionally walk over the boundary (and visits family near Wigan, Preston and Manchester sometimes)
  • Sourcerer visits several times per year to see good friends who like beer and curry. At last there has been a reachable point but so far no drag-along and pub/curry geohash potential.
  • MontyVisited graticule as part of a coast-line trip
  • MagicIan grew up in this graticule and still has family and friends living here.



Planned Expeditions[edit]

Post your plan here ...

  • 2019-02-02 53 -2 Hashpoint is right in the Ashton-under-Lyne Ikea. I think it might even be in the cafeteria. I'm getting my Swedish meatballs on today!



  • 2017-11-18 53 -2: KarMann got his first UK geohash, after a few years of mostly inactivity in Arizona, and waiting most of a few months for a well-situated geohash here.



  • 2013-04-07 53 -2: Longhairedred happened to be staying at a friend's house just down the road from this geohash, so walked up after lunch
  • 2013-08-11 53 -2: Angel (talk) saw a hash 9 miles away, straight up the National Cycle Network route 91; but waited until mum got home from work, and got a lift to earn a drag-along acheivement instead of jogging.



  • Everyone is sleeping but Sourcerer visits several times per year to see good friends who like beer and curry. Sooner or later there will be a reachable point, perhaps with drag-along and pub/curry geohash potential.
  • 2011-07-27 53 -2: Planned by Monty as the first part of a coast-to-coast triplet. Reached (though not fully photographed), report still pending. (map).
  • 2011-05-01 53 -2: A field right next to the M6 motorway between Crewe and Newcastle, and only a couple of metres off a footpath. Benjw and MrsBenjw called in on the way home from a birthday party in Staffordshire.


  • Or two.


  • Everyone slept for a year.
