Also — here are the options for local access to the festival from the Bolesworth Estate
1) Walk or bike from Tattenhall along Burwardsley Road and access Tattenhall Lodge entrance via Dark Lane on the pedestrian safe route. The cross country public footpath from the Flacca could also be an option. Bikes can be left on black railings at the Tattenhall Lodge entrance at your own risk. This is the safest and only pedestrian route. Torches are advised for those walking home afterwards.
2) Drive and park in the public car park (free of charge) which is situated at the Tattenhall Lodge. Follow CarFest signage from Tattenhall. Cars could be left overnight and collected on foot if drinking.
3) Taxi Drop off at the A41 entrance. (No taxi drop offs at Tattenhall entrance due to congestion / being pedestrian safe route).
Also, an important note, dogs are not allowed on the Festival site.
