From the north or south –
Leave the M6 at Junction 35 and follow signs to Over Kellet on the Kirkby Lonsdale road.

 

Go straight through Over Kellet and approximately 2 miles up that road, just past the Redwell Caravan Park, there is a left hand bend (with rusty white railings) opposite which is a turning to the right signed Lancaster. Take this road and, after approximately 2 miles, where the road starts to bend sharply right, there is a left hand turn signed to Aughton, but easy to overshoot because the sign is small. Turn left down this road, which is Aughton Road, and after about a quarter of a mile you will come to the entrance to Whinney Hill, the first lane on the left.

 

From North Yorkshire –
Take the A65 to Kirkby Lonsdale then follow the B6254 towards Carnforth, going through the villages of Whittington and Arkholme. After leaving Arkholme you will come to the Red Well pub on the right hand side of the road. Immediately after the Red Well take the left fork signed for Lancaster. Take this road and after approximately 2 miles where the road starts to bend right, there is a left hand turn signed to Aughton, but easy to overshoot as the sign is small. Turn left down this road, which is Aughton Road, and after about a quarter of a mile you will come to the entrance to Whinney Hill, the first lane on the left.

 

 

From Lancaster City Centre (or if leaving M6 at J34)–
Leave the city up Caton Road. Go under the motorway on the A683. Stay on this for a couple of miles then just after the 30 mph sign take the left turn signed for Halton and cross the river at the Crook of Lune. Take the second road on the right, Green Lane, signed for Nether Kellet. At the T junction turn right towards Kirkby Lonsdale. Stay on this road for another couple of miles then as it bends sharp left, take the road on the right Aughton Road. After a quarter of a mile you will come to the entrance to Whinney Hill, the first lane on the left.

IMPORTANT – Access to the venue is along a single track lane with no passing places. If your class starts at 8 pm please try to arrive early (or late) to avoid meeting anyone leaving the first class coming in the opposite direction  . It would be very difficult to back up, especially in the dark. (We’ll get used to timing comings and goings right.)

 

FOOTWEAR

It could be slippery if damp or wet so normal trainers are not recommended and definitely no wellies.The best options are football or astroturf boots or hockey boots like Ditas. The hockey boots have studs on the side to help stability when turning.And you might want to invest in a pair of waterproof socks like Sealskinz.
