  1. We're just at the bottom of the long steep hill from Halifax, on the A58. Turn in by the brown tourist sign with a picture of a boat.
  2. Go down the cobbled road till you have to turn left, through an arch and we are the next building.

By train: come to Sowerby Bridge and follow the signposts to Sowerby Bridge Wharf - about 10 minutes. We'll meet your train if you let us know when you're coming.
