Directions

By Car

Leave the M1 at Junction 29 (Chesterfield). Take the 2nd exit on the roundabout and follow the dual carriageway to Chesterfield. At the next roundabout turn right and continue on the A61 dual carriageway to Sheffield. Go straight across the next roundabout (2nd exit), (there is a large Tesco on your left). Continue on the dual carriageway across the next roundabout (3rd exit) and climb a steep hill.

At the next roundabout turn left, continuing on the dual carriageway. You will see a sign saying you have entered Sheffield (Lowedges). Turn left at the next (Meadowhead) roundabout and stay in the left lane. At the next roundabout turn right, (in between Greenhill School on your right and St Peter's Church). Greenhill Library is on the corner of the next roundabout.

Parking

There is some parking for Greenhill Library on your left directly before the bus-stop. If you are disabled, this is where you should park - to use the ramp rather than the stairs.

Otherwise, go left at the roundabout and there is another small car park, or failing that plenty of on-street parking.

By Train

For anyone arriving by train, the most sensible way to get from Sheffield train station to Greenhill Library is to take a taxi which should cost around £10.

We expect that as in previous years there will be no trains arriving from the South on the day that will arrive in time for the start of the tournament.
