We had a lovely weekend here in the spring of 2016 and hope to be able to return here at some point in the future.
HOW TO GET HERE
So the full address for your GPS is Bagshaw Museum, Wilton Park, Batley WF17 0AS. There are two car parks which are both free. The top one nearest to the building holds about 30 (depending on how people park as not marked bays). The bottom one is larger holding maybe 50 in total. Both are free parking.
TRADERS & VISITORS:
If travelling south along the A643 Leeds Road, turn left into Upper Batley Lane, if coming the other way, obviously it will be on your right. This brings you to the top end of Wilton Park. Turn into Woodlands Road, then go right (you'll be in a nice new collection of houses which is confusing), then second left - there is a little brown sign pointing the way. There is a small car park on your left which holds around 30 cars (if they are parked neatly as there are no marked bays).
Upper Batley Lane: 213, 223
Intake Lane: 281, 282
VISITORS ONLY NOT TRADERS!
If this car park is full, come in from the A652 Bradford Road at the bottom of the park. There is a boating lake there which is right next to this end and there is car parking at each side of the lake which hold around 50 cars in total. The left hand car park looks to be the best bet and it's about a ten minute walk up through the woods and brings you out in the gardens near the observatory.
Bradford Road/Park Drive: 229, 281, 282, 283, 229A
