From the South
Firstly reach Leek in Staffordshire Moorlands (either via M1 junction 23, then take the A50 towards Stoke and Uttoxeter and the A515 to Ashbourne before picking up the A523 towards Leek, and Manchester). Alternatively take the M6 to junction 15 and take the A500 through Stoke before turning onto the A53 to Leek.
From Leek follow the A53 towards Buxton for about 3 miles. You will pass a large pub called the Three Horseshoes and then start climbing a hill (at this point you will see The Roaches climbing rocks ahead on your left). A little further on take a left turn in Upper Hulme. After 2-300 m take the first left (there may be a sign here to The Potting Shed), continuing through the industrial hamlet. Stay on this road for approx ¾ mile. Approximately 200m past the Roaches Tea Room turn right over the cattle grid. Drive up the gravel lane towards and around the rocks. Roaches Hall is at the end of this lane.
