HOW TO FIND CARR MILL DAM
Whether coming from the North, East or South you will probably end up on the M6. Exit the motorway at Junction 23, Haydock Park, and join the A580 (East Lancs Highway) heading towards Liverpool. Continue on this road for approximately 3.5 miles. As you pass under a railway bridge and come up to some traffic lights look out for the Toby Carvery on your right. Take this turn onto the A571 and turn immediately right again, into the Toby Carvery carpark. Follow this lane all the way down along the waterside and over the overflow bridge until you reach the gates of The Boathouse.
If you are coming from the West then the best option is to go via the Queensway Tunnel in Liverpool. Head round Liverpool towards the A59 East Lancs Highway. Continue on the East Lancs for 10 miles and look out for the Toby Carvery on your left. When you see the Toby Carvery, take the left towards Billinge and then immediately right in the pubs carpark. Follow this lane all the way down along the waterside and over the overflow bridge until you reach the gates of The Boathouse.
Our nearest Railway Station is St Helens Central and this is the hub for our local public transport routes. To get to us from here you will need the 352 Arriva service to Wigan. This runs every 15 minutes during the day from Monday to Saturday, every 30 mins on evenings from Monday to Saturday, and all day Sunday (please check times before you book). Once on the bus it is approximately 10 stops to us. The stop is called Carr Mill East Lancs and is outside a Toby Carvery. Now you must walk through the carpark and follow the lakeside up the lane till you reach the big gates of The Boathouse (5-10 minute walk).
