By Road

(Directions from the M1, Junction 25).

  • At Junction 25, follow signs for Long Eaton and turn onto Bostock Lane.

  • Carry on along Bostock Lane until you reach an island. Here TURN RIGHT onto Longmoor Lane.

  • Continue along Longmoor Lane until you reach a second island. At this island go STRAIGHT ON along Wilsthorpe Road (B6002). There will be a sign for Sawley and on the island a large pub called Eaton Farm.

  • Carry on along Wilsthorpe Road (B6002), STRAIGHT ON over two mini islands (the first near West Park Leisure Centre and the second near The Wilsthorpe Tavern), until you reach a third large island.

  • At this island, with Long Eaton Railway Station on it, TURN RIGHT under the larger railway bridge into Sawley.

  • You are now on Tamworth Road (B6540). Take the SIXTH TURN ON THE RIGHT onto Draycott Road (there is a right-turning filter lane at the bollards). Note: The first right turn looks like a dirt track near The Sawley Dental Practice. (When you see a cul-de-sac with a white gate at the entrance, the next right turn is Draycott Road).

  • Continue along Draycott Road until you see The Co-Op on the RIGHT. The Community Hall is next door.
