FROM CREWE POST OFFICE BC
Due to the closure of Sydney Road Bridge (scheduled to not be completed until May 2019) the best way to the Post Office Club from Winsford/Northwich area is via Middlewich,  Sandbach i.e. A534, Sandbach by-pass, Crewe Green Roundabout to Sydney Road.  
 
If anyone forgets, and comes in via Leighton Hospital, their only course of action would be to go past Coppenhall Club to roundabout, take 3rd exit  left then take first right into Middlewich Street. On reaching traffic lights turn left onto Vernon Way, to next roundabout, turn left into Earle Street, go through roundabout (entrance to Retail Park on right) over  bridge, keep straight on into Hungerford Road.  Take 2nd turning left into Coleridge Way/Lansdowne Road turn right into Sydney Road then left into Club drive.  PLEASE NOTE THIS ROUTE IS VERY BUSY WITH LONG QUEUES.
