The Sportsman Inn LinkExternal link on Mottram Road is a "real ale" pub. It stands on the box junction with Lumn Road and Cheapside (now the exit from Morrisons supermarket).
Box Junction
A box junction is a traffic control measure designed to prevent gridlock at busy road junctions. The surface of the junction is marked with a criss-cross grid of diagonal painted lines and vehicles may not enter the area so marked unless their exit from the junction is clear; drivers may enter the box and wait when they want to turn right and are stopped from doing so only by oncoming traffic or by other vehicles waiting to turn right.
