Half a mile down the road, you’ll see a sign telling you to turn right for Wheatley Park. We’re about five minutes away from there. Or you can just give us a call and we’ll come and pick you up.

If you’re not local, the easiest way to get to Mirfield is via the M62. Leave the motorway at junction 25 and get on the A644 towards Dewsbury. When you get to the next set of traffic lights take the left-hand lane and immediately filter over to the right towards Leeds. Quickly get over into the right-hand lane towards Dewsbury. Stay in the right-hand lane and when you go through the traffic lights, the petrol station should be on your left-hand side.
From here, it’s about two miles into Mirfield. As you head into the town centre, you’ll hit some traffic lights – you want to take the right at the lights, straight after the lighting shop on your right-hand side. Once you’re through the lights you’ll go under a bridge, then over another, and it’s a sharp left on to Calder Road. Go all the way to the end of Calder Road and you’ll see The Flower Pot on the left. Turn left and at the roundabout go straight across on to Granny Lane.
Half a mile down the road, you’ll see a sign telling you to turn right for Wheatley Park. Follow the signs and you’ll find us right at the top of the park – not far from the cricket club.
