Location of The Old Joiner's Shop

Directions

From the South

  • Leave the M6 motorway at junction 36 for Kendal/Lakes
  • Follow signs to Barrow (A590)
  • Turn right to Workington (A5092) 3 miles beyond Newby Bridge and follow this road for 10 miles (it bypasses Broughton-in-Furness)
  • Turn right to Ulpha before the River Duddon (at the traffic lights 3/4 mile beyond Broughton)
  • After 4 miles turn left in Ulpha village to the steep hill signed Eskdale
  • Follow the fell road to the King George IV pub (6 miles)
  • Turn right up the valley road
  • The Old Joiner's Shop is 250 yards on your right (first, and only, house on the right)


Please note: if you have satellite navigation, the recommended route often appears to be over Wrynose and Hardknott passes which can be very lovely but are incredibly steep (England's steepest road with gradients of up to one in three), windy and narrow. Following this route is shorter in distance but certainly not quicker than the directions shown above. 

The postcode for The Old Joiner's Shop is: CA19 1TF.

  • Leave the M6 at Carlisle (junction 44) and follow the A595 (signed Barrow).

There is parking for two cars by the side of the house, although please note that the first car is blocked in by the second car.  This parking area is quite narrow. A third small car can park by the road.
