directions to the studio
The studio is about 5 miles North West of Preston from junction 32 of the M6. There are many alternative routes (and it can be easy to get lost on the country lanes).  Once you get near the studios there are a number of signs for Roots Cafe.

route1 (probably the route SAT Nav will take you, it goes over a single lane humpback bridge over the canal)

  1. travel along the A6 Garstang Road North from Preston, towards Garstang
  2. follow signs for Catforth/Inskip (new road layout) and in Broughton, take the B5269 / Woodplumpton Lane / Newsham Hall Lane towards Woodplumpton / Catforth / Inskip
  3. at the T-junction near Woodplumpton, take the right and continue towards Catforth
  4. the road goes over the canal, take the first left onto School Lane
  5. at the next T-junction, turn left onto Catforth Road
  6. take the 2nd lane on your right onto Blackleach Lane
  7. this road narrows to one lane and their is a narrow humpback bridge over the canal, a short distance further, you’ll go past buildings and a farm
  8. take the first right onto Roots Lane (if you go over the motorway you’ve gone too far)
  9. the studios & Roots cafe are immediately on your left, with the car park at the end of the buildings
  10. my studio is the first one / furthest from the cafe

the optional route without Sat Nav (avoiding the single lane humpback bridge over the canal)

If you are driving from the M6, exit M6 at Junction 32 / M55 Junction 1 

  1. take the left sliproad towards Preston
  2. at the traffic lights you need to be in the left lane and turn left onto the A6 south towards Preston, immediately take first left sliproad onto the Eastway (signed Ingol) and take a left at the roundabout (the road goes underneath the motorway)
  3. at the next roundabout take the 2nd exit following signs for Ingol
  4. drive for 1.5miles along Lightfoot Lane / Tom Benson Way (B5411) past 2 traffic lights
  5. at the roundabout take the 4th (last) exit onto Tag Lane towards Woodplumton

  8. you go past 2 pubs (on your right), immediately after passing Bartle Hall (on your right) turn left onto Blackleach Lane
  9. take the next right, then bear right continuing along Blackleach Lane, the road narrows and you will need to pull over to the side if there is oncoming traffic
