How to get here


From Knottingley:
Heading eastwards along the A645, cross the Leeds to Goole Canal (very close to the works of Croda). Almost on the brow of the bridge turn left into unmetalled Trundles Lane. (It is a bad junction so use extreme caution). After 200 yards, where a narrow footbridge across a canal is ahead, turn sharp right. The unfenced canal is now on the left and the Croda works on the right. Continue along this lane for a third-of-a-mile until it leaves the works fence. Park here on the roadside. The reserve entrance lies 200 yards ahead, on the right.
