The simplest way to find the site is from the Ferrybridge Services off the M62 (Jct 33). From the roundabout the services are on take the northbound exit onto the old A1, follow the old A1 north until it changes to a single carriageway, the site is on the right shortly after that point.

From the north you can exit the A1(M) at Jct 42, turn right at the first roundabout at the end of the sliproad, straight on at the second roundabout, left at the third and that brings you onto the old A1. Once you cross over the A1(M), go straight on (first exit) at the next roundabout and the site will be next on your left, if you miss it and get onto the dual carriageway you'll need to go all the way to Ferrybridge Services to turn around.
