Leyland Society of Model Engineers


How to find us:


For Worden Park Track:

From North or South on M6

Leave the M6 at junction 28 and turn left toward Leyland on the B5256. Pass the Leyland Jarvis Hotel on the left and then turn second left into Bent Lane.

Follow Bent Lane (yes it is) to the mini roundabout and turn right.

At the next mini roundabout (150yds) turn left (Signed "Runshaw College") into Langdale Road. (sign on left after turn!)

Follow this road through the housing estate past Runshaw College to the T junction.

Turn RIGHT at the junction (the old way-in through the gates is now the way out!). Continue for about 300yds and then turn left into the main car park. (Opposite Vicarsfield Road)

For those of you with SatNav, PR25 3BD will get you to the gates of the car park but probably by a different route!

Drive through the car park and out through the gate at the far end. Continue to the "T" junction. Watch the speed bumps!

Turn RIGHT at the "T" and continue until you re-enter trees. Take the next left (signed "Car Park", straight on is No Entry).

The raised track and club house are on the left and the car park on the right.


For the Farington Conservative Club:

Go to the western end of the M65. (You can join the M65 from either M61 or M6.)

When you get to the proper roundabout (there is another one just before it but you can only do a right), take the left hand lane which takes you left onto a dual carriage way.

At the next roundabout (quarter of a mile) take the left lane again. This turns you left onto the road into Leyland.

After some distance when you get into the town you pass straight through a set of traffic lights and soon after there are some bollards in the middle of the road. The club is immediately on the left.

If you come to the mini roundabout near the railway station you have gone too far. Do a U turn and look for the bollards. The club will then be on your right.

The club can be approached from the M6 through the town but I haven't tried that yet! I will refine the directions as I get more used to them!
