Directions for the Two Pointers

69 Church Street,  Woodlesford, LS26 8RE

From the end of Fleet Lane by Lidl supermarket follow the Aberford Road (A642)
to Garforth/Aberford (North West) for about 1000 yds.
The road drops down to a railway bridge over the road (if you reach the canal/river crossings you have gone too far).
Immediately before the railway bridge turn left into Station Lane, up the hill for 500 yds
and the Two Pointers is on the right – car parking at the rear.

  1. Hi. Is there a clear map of St Aidan’s / Swillington Ings available anywhere? I find the only one I can find online very confusing and unclear. When birds are mentioned online as being in, say, Black Pipe Bay, someone like me who is unfamiliar with the site has no chance of tracking it down, given the size of the site. Any information gratefully received. Thanks Hilary Milburn

    • Hi Hilary. The only map of the St, Aidan’s main bay area is on the Site’s page but it is not very detailed. The black pipe bay area was only named recently because there is a black plastic pipe which has been left behind by contractors, it is just back from the waters edge in an area of the main lake. This area is best viewed from the path between the Eastern Reedbed and the Ridge & furrow approximately 50 yards from the northern end of the main causeway. The St. Aidan’s rights of way map on the sites page may help.
      Hope this helps.
