Cornbrook Station
A Metrolink tram and a mainline train pass at Cornbrook.

Situated in the St George's district, the tram stop at Cornbrook is the busiest on the Metrolink Network, used mainly as an interchange where passengers can transfer between the network's Altrincham, Eccles, Airport and South Manchester lines.

Cornbrook is on the original Bury to Altrincham Metrolink line which opened in 1992 using the former Manchester to Altrincham railway line but the tram stop didnít open until the Eccles extension was completed in 1999. Opening in December of that year, the stop was unique at that time as it had no access to or from the street; it was used solely for transfers between Altrincham line trams and Eccles trams. The stop's street access finally opened in September 2005 when the emergency exit to the street was converted into a full passenger entrance/exit.

The stop gets its name from the (now culverted) Corn Brook (LinkExternal link Hidden Manchester Map), a tributary of the River Irwell which runs through the area.
