How To Find Us

Hindley Ground

Following the completion of the new St. Peter's Pavilion site the access point to the cricket ground has changed. There is now NO access via the old entrance. Please read the directions below, even if you have visited HSP before.

(Sat-nav : 104 or 106 Wigan Road, Hindley, Wigan, WN2 3DF - see below)

Hindley is 3 miles from Wigan, within easy reach of Manchester and Liverpool, and only a short distance from the M6, M60, M61 and M62 motorways and the A580 East Lancs Road.

Directions from Manchester and M61 : From Manchester, get onto the M60 and follow signs for M61, Bolton & Preston. Join the M61, leave at Junction 5 and follow the A58 towards Westhoughton and Wigan. Continue on the A58 (Cricketers Way) through Westhoughton, passing Westhoughton Cricket Club on the left. At the lights at the end of Cricketers Way, turn left and follow signs for Hindley. Continue for 2-3 miles until you reach Hindley town centre. At the mini-roundabout near St. John's Church, turn left onto Market Street. Shortly after a pedestrian crossing, turn right into Cross Street and continue to the end. At the traffic lights (Wiganer pub on the right), turn right. After passing a pedestrian crossing take the second turning on the right into Hurst Street (between nos. 104 and 106 Wigan Road, directly opposite the bus stop). There is a road sign pointing to "St. Peter's Pavilion", but it is badly placed and easily missed. On turning into Hurst Street you will see the entrance gates directly in front of you.

Directions from Liverpool and M6 : From Liverpool, take the A580 East Lancs Road as far as the Haydock Interchange. If you are coming on the M6, leave at Junction 23 to reach this point. Follow signs for Ashton in Makerfield, passing the Posthouse Hotel and Haydock Park racecourse on the right. Continue for half a mile until you reach the traffic lights in Ashton town centre. Turn right at the lights; the road then bends to the left along the main street. Go straight through the next set of traffic lights, following signs for Platt Bridge and Hindley. At the traffic lights in Platt Bridge, turn left and continue for about 600 yards until you reach a roundabout. Turn right at the roundabout, following signs for Hindley, then continue on this road for 2-3 miles until you reach the crossroads/traffic lights in Hindley. The Bird i'th Hand pub is on your left and St. Peter's Church is on the right. Turn left here into Wigan Road, passing the Council Offices and the Wiganer pub on the right. Continue through the traffic lights at the Wiganer, and after passing a pedestrian crossing take the second turning on the right into Hurst Street (between nos. 104 and 106 Wigan Road, directly opposite the bus stop). There is a road sign pointing to "St. Peter's Pavilion", but it is badly placed and easily missed. On turning into Hurst Street you will see the entrance gates directly in front of you.

Directions from Wigan : Leave Wigan on the A577 towards Hindley. Go through Ince-in-Makerfield and continue on the same road, passing under the railway bridge, until you reach Hindley. Pass La Cava restaurant and the Hockery Brook pub on your left and, after the gap in the houses on the left (where the old entrance used to be), take the next turning between the houses on the left, directly opposite the bus stop into Hurst Street. There is a road sign pointing to "St. Peter's Pavilion", but it is badly placed and easily missed. On turning into Hurst Street you will see the entrance gates directly in front of you.

N.B. Sat-nav issues : The postal address of the St. Peter's Pavilion site is Hurst Street, Hindley, WN2 3DN, but this postcode was only allocated in late 2008 and so is unlikely to show up on sat-nav systems (even new ones). Some systems also incorrectly show Wigan Road as Atherton Road (including Google Maps). To overcome these problems use postcode WN2 3DF and house no. 104 or 106.

Aspull Ground

(Sat-nav : Woods Road, Aspull, Wigan, WN2 1PJ)

Our 3rd XI's ground at Aspull is approximately 3 miles from Hindley, close to the M61 motorway

At the first set of traffic lights (Royal Oak pub on left), turn right into Dicconson Lane. Continue along this road until you reach a mini-roundabout with St. Elizabeth's Church on the left. Go straight across (ignore signs pointing left to Hindley) and follow this road to the end. Bear left towards Wigan and the cricket ground is a short distance down this road on the left.
