The Chapel and Museum are on the left as you approach from Barthomley, opposite the Graveyard and Car Park.

The entrance to the Tea Room is at the back of the cottage. Just follow the ramp!

Look out for the Brown signs, which will guide you to the Museum from several directions.

From the M6: At the roundabout at Junction 16 of the M6 and the A500, follow the brown signs and take the (smallest) exit signposted Alsager, immediately before the M6 North exit.  Take the first left to Barthomley, and follow the road through the village and round until you reach the hamlet of Englesea Brook.  The car park is on the right past the graveyard, opposite the Chapel and Museum.

By Bus  (D & G no. 85)
