Fancy a trip to Illingworth but don't know how to get there? Have a gander at this page and you should be able to find your way with no problems.

For those rich enough to have a satellite navigation system, the ground's post code is HX2 9ER, so whack that in and follow what the woman says. Remember though at the dead end overlooking Whitehill School playing fields, turn right into some garages before entering the ground (she won't tell you that bit!).
