DIRECTIONS


 

I'm just a 5 minutes from the M61 and M65 in the lovely rural Lancashire countryside and right on the Leeds Liverpool Canal.

Some SatNavs will get confused with the roads. 

Apple Maps and Tom Tom's seem to be OK but Google Maps wants you to trek across a mucky field!

The actual address is:

Silverwood, Withnell Fold, Chorley, Lancashire, PR6 8BB

but......

I'd recommend using Withnell Fold or PR6 8BA on your Sat Nav.  

Once you turn into Withnell Fold, ignore the sat nav and follow the specific directions at the bottom of this page!
