Stirley map

From Huddersfield take the A616 then turn left onto Bridge St, next turn left onto Lockwood Scar. Take a slight left onto Church Lane, continue onto Jackroyd Lane. Follow this up the hill, where it becomes High Lane and then take first right onto Hall Bower Lane (if you reach a T-junction at the top of the hill, you've gone too far). Follow the road through the housing and as the road drops down*, turn left on a sharp bend onto a tarmac drive. Follow the track along till you reach a crossroads and drive straight across to our car park.

From the M1 take the junction 38 exit to Huddersfield. At the roundabout take the second exit onto the A637. Carry on across two roundabouts then at the next take the first exit onto the A642. Turn right onto Station Rd then right onto the A629. Turn left onto Fenay Lane and continue on this road until it becomes Ashes Lane. Follow Ashes Lane and turn right onto High Lane down a steep hill. Take the first left onto Hall Bower Lane. Follow the road through the housing and as the road drops down*, turn left on a sharp bend onto a tarmac drive. Follow the track along till you reach a crossroads and drive straight across to our car park.

*Please ensure you take the new entrance track at the junction between Lady House Lane and Hall Bower Lane rather than Ashes Lane, as this is often entrance is locked and not suitable for traffic.

Please note that during larger events there is limited parking available on the farm, which is prioritised for people with mobility issues. During these events please park at Castle Hill, walk back to Ashes Lane and turn left, the footpath to the farm is opposite the bus stop on the right and near Castle House Farm Cottages. The route will be signposted.
