The Navigation remains the only cask ale pub on Lancashire Hill. It was built to service the workers from the flourmill next door (Nelstrops) and the bargees on the nearby now closed and filled-in canal who finished their journey with a well earned pint. The central bar services both the lounge in which daily newspapers are provided and the smaller vault which has a pool table. The outside drinking area to the rear is invitingly entitled the Bear Garden. Now located on the busy roundabout at the head of Lancashire Hill, this local Pub of the Year 2003. For some years, until the mid-2010s it was Congleton brewer, Beartown Brewery’s only pub in Stockport.
