Directions and Map
General:– The village of Yealand Conyers lies about a mile to the west of the A6, about 3 miles to the north of Carnforth and to the south of Milnthorpe. The meeting house is situated at the top of the hill, about 200 yards past St Mary's Catholic Church coming from the southerly Carnforth/Warton direction, and about 300 yards past the New Inn if coming from the north.

By Car:– From Junction 35 of the M6, head north following signs for Milnthorpe. After about a mile turn left following the sign for Yealand Conyers. Turn left at the T–junction in the village. The meeting House is about 200 yards up the hill and on the left. There is on–street parking.

By Bus:– In the summer, the 555 bus from Lancaster to Carlisle, via Carnforth and Kendal, stops at the Junction of the A6 and the A6070. From there you go up Borwick Lane, through the village of Marton, partly on footpaths, and on to Yealand Conyers. It's about a two mile walk. Alternatively, local buses stop at Peter Hill, twenty yards from the meeting house gate. There are however very few buses on Sundays. There is a bus number 55, operated by Stagecoach throughout the year, that leaves Carnforth on Sunday mornings at 10:08am and arrives outside the meeting house at 10:18am. You are strongly advised however to check details before travelling, either with Stagecoach (01524 422217) or Traveline (0871 200 22 33).

By Train:– Carnforth Railway Station is about 3 miles to the south. Alternatively you can walk, mostly on footpaths, from Silverdale Station, about two miles to the west.
