Travelling by road from the South:


Leave the M6 at Junction 32 - the junction incorporates the M6 and M55 motorways and the A6 trunk road.  Care should be taken to filter left following the ‘A6 Garstang‘ lane indicators.  On joining the A6, follow the ‘Garstang’ signs for three and three-quarter miles to a large sign on the left hand side of the road naming ‘Myerscough College’, and turn left along St Michaels Road.  The College is three-quarters of a mile along this road and involves a right turn half way through an S bend.


Travelling by road from the North:


Leave the M6 at junction 33.  On joining the A6 travel south following ‘Preston’ signs for about nine miles to a large sign on the left hand side of the road, naming ‘Myerscough College’ and turn right into St Michaels Road.


Please park in the Visitors Car Park and follow the signs to the Bowland Suite.
