Look out for this signpost
Go through the gate and along the path
The path leads down into a small valley.
Go across the bridge and through the gate into the meadow. Use the kissing gate on the left rather than opening the field gate.

Approaching the gate
Go through the kissing gate on the left...
... and continue along the path
You'll see the Hall on your left. Don't go through this gate but continue along the path towards the road and the main entrance.
Continue past the outbuildings towards the gate at the end of the path. Caution - the gate opens on to a road with no pavement (sidewalk), so don't let children run ahead.
Go through the gate. The Swarthmoor Hall entrance is immediately to your left. The road isn't very busy but nevertheless look out for traffic. Overseas visitors should bear in mind that we drive on the left.
There's a notice board displaying opening times, but check the website
