From Stoke-on Trent, take the A52 towards Ashbourne. After about 8 miles there is a petrol station on your right, where you should take care to continue on the A52 by turning left. Carry on for another 3 miles, going down a long hill untill you come to Froghall on the valley floor. Take the second road on the left signposted to Foxt and follow this road for 600 yards. This will take you through the Froghall Wharf picnic site (scattering of roadside buildings), over the canal bridge and we are immediately on the left.
From Derby, take the A52 towards Ashbourneand then on towards Stoke-on-Trent. About 4 miles past Ashbourne you should be careful to follow the A52 which branches off left. Follow this road for a further 6 or 7 miles, through Whiston and descend a very steep hill. Just before the bottom of the hill, turn sharp right, signposted for Foxt (don’t be confused by an earlier turn off for Foxt before Whiston) and follow this road for 600 yards. This will takeyou through the Froghall Wharf picnic site (a scattering of roadside buildings), over the canal bridge and we are immediately on the left.
