Our main entrance is located at the lowermost end of the "Pay & Display" Public Car Park located off Oddfellows Road in the centre of the village of Hathersage. Travelling into Hathersage from any direction you'll see blue and white "P" signs directing you to this car park, which is adjacent to the swimming pool and the tennis courts and fire station. We own a private car area at the lowermost end of the public car park. Please note that although our postal address is "Station Road", there is no vehicular access to our site from Station Road itself. You need to access the triangle of land within Main Road, Station Road and Oddfellows Road from the Oddfellows Road side.

We strongly suggest you use the maps we provide to find your way around the village. People using GPS equipment or navigating using postcodes often turn up late because they've got lost !

Getting to our base by rail... Hathersage station is just 350 m.

Getting to our base and offices in Hathersage by rail is easy from all over the UK. We are on the lovely scenic Hope Valley line which is the main line between Manchester in the West and Sheffield in the East. We are nearer to Sheffield than Manchester, so people travelling here from London tend to travel up from the International St. Pancras Station to Sheffield and then catch a diesel car local service here from Sheffield. Along the way you'll go through one of the longest tunnels in the UK which takes the line deep under the hills and moors between here and Sheffield.
