Address:- The Longcroft, Storeton Lane, Barnston, Wirral, CH61 1BU.
Directions:- The Longcroft is about a third of a mile (0.5 km) on the left from the Barnston Road end of Storeton Lane. There are signs on both sides of the entrance (see photo below) and there is a bus stop roughly opposite. If you are coming from the Barnston Road end, the entrance appears fairly suddenly after a slight left hand bend in the road. If you are coming the opposite way (e.g. from Birkenhead), the signs appear fairly suddenly on the right, so look out for the bus stop on the left as a guide. On arrival please come up the driveway and enter the car park on the left.
M53 users – you can leave at junction 3 or 4. Whilst junction 4 might be slightly closer to the Longcroft, you may find it easier to use junction 3 if you are a stranger to the area, as this route uses main roads rather than country lanes.
Our GPS co-ordinates are: Lat 53.344991, Lon -3.079124.
Detailed directions from junction 3:- From within the junction follow the signs for A552(W). On leaving the junction you merge with the main road at a set of lights (where you will see an Asda store across the road). You then go through two more sets of lights in quick succession. After about 0.4 miles at the next set of lights (where you will see the Arrowe Park Hotel on the right) turn left – signposted A551 Heswall. Follow the road for about 1.7 miles after which the road goes down into a dip. On coming up from the dip you will see the Fox & Hounds pub on the right. Storeton Lane is on the left shortly after this – please look out for it as it is quite narrow and inconspicuous (though signs to the Barnstondale Activity Centre should help you). Please then follow the instructions as above (from the Barnston Road end).
