Travel and Parking Arrangements
Location: Off the A483 in Llanymynech , 6 miles south of Oswestry, 8 miles north of Welshpool
Grid ref SJ266211 Postcode SY22 6JY
There is a small parking area just off the A483 at the British Waterways depot, to the north of the canal which is accessible for minibuses/cars. This is not suitable for coach parking though it is feasible to use it for picking up at the end of the visit. Minibuses may also be able to park in the public car park behind the Dolphin Public House in the village. (SY22 6ER). Guided tours will start in Pant, half a mile west of Llanymynech to the east where dropping off facilities will be available, subject to permission, between Bryn Offa School (01691 830621) and the Cross Guns pub.
Arrangements On The Day
For the use of just the Limeworks Stables we suggest that you arrange to meet the key holder at British Waterways Depot car park.
If you are meeting a Guide then you should arrange to meet at Bryn Offa School/Briggs Lane by Cross Guns in Pant. It would be sensible to have exchanged mobile phone numbers in case of any last minute change of plans. You will then walk up to the English Quarry (number 1 on the map). Children will need to bring their lunch with them in a rucksack OR lunches can be left in the coach/minibus and picked up at lunch time from the British Waterways car park in Llanymynech.
Children will need strong shoes or trainers and outdoor clothing.
The Limeworks Stables is secure and lockable.
We also recommend that each member of staff carries a mobile phone, although reception around the Heritage Area can be patchy, and a small first aid kit.
