From the M6 exit at junction 31, take the A 59 for Clitheroe.
After about 1 mile, move into right hand lane of dual carriageway. At first roundabout (by the Salmesbury Hotel, formerly called the Swallow Hotel - a white building on the left - and a filling station on the other side) double back onto A59 and immediately take left turn just past filling station onto B6230 Walton-le-Dale (Cuerdale Lane).
The venue is the first building on the right.
