It is indeed. The tram stop is about 10 minutes walk from the church.
Chorlton is well worth a visit at any time - it has a huge number of bars and free houses, with nearly every single one offering cask ale from innovative independent breweries. The range of beers is astonishing.

I've not been; but I'd imagine that trendy bars (albeit selling RA) would be pricey. Heh, even the Grey Horse (or wassit the Circus Tav?) sells Tetley at a premium these days. Hare & Hounds, Shudhill seemed to be one of a few proper pubs left selling beer at a reasonable price.

And you would be correct. Typically in the range from three pound fifty to four pound a pint. If you want cheap round Manchester, go to Stockport or Stalybridge. If you want dirt cheap, go to Eccles or Leigh.

Back when I was willing to pay good money to Arriva Trains, myself and a drinking companion choose to tour Stockport, rather than bother looking at prices in Manchester. We did manage to get to a fine Holt's building (Lamb Hotel) in Eccles. Salford was awful, desolate and yet pricey. Further back, I first went to the Derby Arms, Cheetham Hill when I read it had the cheapest pint in Britain (Holt's Mild: 86p?).
I don't think I've ever been to Leigh; I see it as a spoon, European food, and a lot of shutters.

There is a rather decent real ale trail in Leigh, with about a dozen pubs a t convenient intervals along a fairly straight road. It used to be availabl e as a pdf file on the local CAMRA branch's website but seems to have disap peared. Still available in paper format but then you really need to be in L eigh to pick it up. Or you could look at the online guide - and zoom in on Leigh Road. D ecent beers at decent prices from mostly local breweries.
For added excitement, Leigh is linked to Salford and Manchester by Guided B us, which is, different...
