yes is that the cheapest way???

Indeed, direct trains run between BPN and MAN.
Depending when you want to travel it's XX:45 each hour until 15:45 then 16:41, 17:20 then 18:45.
Advance single tickets show at £6.00 but depends on what train you want to get. Turn up at the station and pay is £13.50 for a single.

If you're going to Blackpool South, then you'd need to change at Preston.

It might be cheaper to go from Victoria with Northern, not too sure though.
