Location

Frodsham can be reached via the M56. Leave at Junction 12, following signs to the A56 and continue on into Frodsham. Fluin Lane is the B5152 and runs south from the A56, immediately left after a footbridge over the road. There are signs to the Community Centre, which is on the right. There is a large free car park.

Frodsham station is on the line between Manchester and North Wales, half way between Warrington (11 minutes) and Chester (13 minutes), and on the new Liverpool - Chester service via Runcorn. Normally on a Sunday services arrive on both routes in time for the event (07:18 bus from Piccadilly arrives 09:13; 09:45 train from Lime Street arrives 10:13).

Turn right at the bottom of the station approach, turn right again and bear east along the High Street for 500m and turn right into Fluin Lane. A shorter route is to exit the south side and turn left across the car park to the sloping path at the far end. Follow this path straight on into a close called Blue Hatch which has the Community Centre on its right.

Accommodation

The Holiday Inn Runcorn is not too far away; Book online, or phone 0800 405060. There are various guest houses in the area.
