FROM THE FYLDE AND THE NORTH:
You can find the church about two miles from the M6 J32 or the M55 J1. Simply follow the signs for the A6 Preston. After a couple of miles, shortly after a speed camera (note that the speed limit is 30mph), you will come to a set of lights with a Shell petrol station on one corner and a Royal Bank of Scotland on another.
Turn left here. The church is on the left-hand side, just round the corner. Parking is available on the car parks at the front and rear of the church; as well as on Sundays, at the Checco'sí restaurant across the road. (TILL 12.00 MIDDAY ONLY)
Parking is also available across the A6 behind the bank on Lytham Road, at the Health Centre and Doctor's car park. EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS ONLY. Extra weekday parking MAY be available at the URC church on Symonds Road.
Please DO NOT park on the local roads, especially West Road, which is Residents Access Only.
Please ensure that you park sensibly to avoid inconveniencing local residents.
FROM THE SOUTH AND EAST:
Leave the M6 at J31a on to the B6242. Take the third exit at the roundabout (following signs for Preston North End football club). Take the second exit (i.e. straight on) at the next roundabout. Turn left at the third (and last) roundabout. You should still be following the signs for Preston North End.
Turn right at the traffic lights. You are now on Watling Street Road and should be able to see the White Hart pub shortly on your right.
Follow this road for half a mile to the next junction. Take the right-hand lane at the traffic lights to continue along Watling Street Road. Continue straight ahead at the next lights. The church is at the end of the road on the right.
Alternatively, continue north along the M6 to junction 32, taking the LH lane. This is signposted Blackpool and Garstang. Keep in the very LH lane to exit to the A6. Then follow the instructions as from the north. (above)
From the city centre bus station, catch a Preston Bus No. 4B, Stagecoach No. 4/4A or No. 40/41 up Garstang Road to Withy Trees, or the Preston Bus No. 22/23 to Lytham Road roundabout. It is then a 400m walk, east along Lytham Road. Otherwise take the Preston Bus No. 19A and walk from Sharoe Green Lane (about 800m). Preston Bus charge about £1.45 from the bus station, but be warned that they do not give change.
Preston railway station is on the main London to Glasgow line. It is served by Virgin trains, Trans Pennine Express and Northern Rail. A Preston Bus service No.1 Park and Ride runs from the railway station to the bus station.
