From our office in the centre of Slaithwaite travel along Britannia Road to the mini roundabout, turn left onto Church Street, then left again onto Nabbs Lane passing the Silent Woman pub. Take a further left onto Howgate Road and then continue as the road becomes Rotcher Lane. This eventually passes under a railway bridge and the property will be found shortly after amidst a small cluster of cottages and houses, down an unmade track on the left hand side.
