Downs Banks


From the A34 just South of the DARLASTON roundabout (1 1⁄4 miles North of Stone) take the minor road on the Left towards BARLASTON. After 500 yards turn RIGHT.

Immediately after the canal bridge turn LEFT into Washdale Lane. Continue on this road for about a mile.

The entrance to the Downs Banks Car Park is on the left a short distance after crossing a Ford. Postcode ST15 8UU would put you in Washdale Lane between the ford and the canal.
