  • Cross over next roundabout [Wetherby Road].
  • Take second exit at next roundabout, signposted  Woodthorpe.
  • Continue on this road, crossing a mini roundabout taking you across railway line. Must be approx  1-2 miles.
  • At next big roundabout turn left onto A1036, signposted York. This is called Tadcaster Road.
  • Continue on Tadcaster Road towards York, over traffic lights [by St Edwards Church].
  • Racecourse is on your Right. At end of Racecourse turn right by white fencing. There is a right turn arrow for you, but the turning is not particularly clear. There are brown signs to Racecourse.
  • Racecourse is now on your right with Little Knavesmire [more green space] on your left.
  • There is a left bend in road, Terrys factory is visible, and after bend St Chad’s is on left after a few hundred yards.
  • Park in car park or on road.

St Chads was built of red brick in 1920’s so don’t be looking out for stone towers or spires!!
