After about 2 miles and when you come to a roundabout (Kislingbury signed to the left), go right round
(270) the roundabout and up Sandy Lane. Go up the slight hill for around mile and take the first turn-
ing on your left into Larkhall Lane. Continue down Larkhall Lane about 1 mile and as you approach Harpole
village, the club is very obvious on your left with a large car park.

From the Daventry area go over M1/J16 towards Northampton (or if coming up the M1 from the south,
come off at J16 and go right round the roundabout). Take the A45 (that becomes A4500 towards
Northampton). After you have passed the Beefeater pub on your left (also known as the
Turnpike/Beefeater), at the next roundabout, turn left into Sandy Lane (clearly marked). Go up the slight
hill to the first turning on your left (about mile) into Larkhall Lane. Continue down Larkhall Lane about 1
mile and as you approach Harpole village, the club is very obvious on your left with a large car park.
