By Road

We are easily located just off of the M6 motorway at Junction 18.

From the M6 we recommend taking junction 18 exit and turning right on the roundabout as you come off the motorway (third exit) if travelling southbound.  If you are travelling northbound then turn left on the roundabout as you come off of the motorway (first exit). After 3 miles and crossing straight over an additional roundabout you turn left onto Leadsmithy Street (A533).  This junction is easily recognisable as having traffic lights and a large church on the left.  A little way down the road turn onto Canal Terrace which is opposite the Royal British Legion and down a short lane.

You will find us at the end of the lane and should enter the gates on the left.
