Directions to Ashley Mill Bridge

From Priory Road, Bowdon Vale (postcode WA14 3BP) follow the signs for The Priory, taking you along a private road where you will pick up signs for the footpath on the right, which will take you past some buildings on your left and into a field. Follow the path over the field and through two stiles, where you will enter a wooded area. Continue approx. 150 metres to Priory Bridge.
