into Lees Road. After nearly half a mile, and after the fire station, turn
left up Balfour Street.
Balfour Street is quite steep. As the road at last starts to

part of the Manchester orbital road, and is numbered as the M60.
If travelling from Leeds, leave the M60
at junction 22 and turn toward the A672 (signposted ‘Saddleworth’ and

carpet store, and with a huge Tesco Extra superstore to your right. Turn
right. You will still be on Huddersfield Road (the A62).
Almost immediately, turn left after the
giant Carpet where a large white sign says ‘Precinct still open’. This is Dunkerley Street. Drive to the end (about 50 metres).

straight ahead, crossing Greenacres Road. Less than 5 metres
