    A59 to Skipton then A65 thru Gargrave & Hellifield to Long Preston, left on Station Rd towards Tosside...About 7 miles after Long Preston crossroads called Stephen Moor. Turn right and watch for car park on the right. You have arrived at your destination.. :D
  • I imagine that the AA route planner has shown you the best route really. It's a lovely road to drive there, nice and bendy at the National Speed Limit 8)

    The only point I can mention is when you get to the small village there, you'll find a stone cross at a T junction, you'll see a pub very close by. Park there, then you'll find your way quite easily. Also, bring monies, the pub is excellent!
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
