Directions to The Waterworks Museum and Thruxton Court

 

Directions to The Waterworks Museum

Cross the River Wye in Hereford via Greyfriars Bridge and turn left at the traffic lights at its northern end into Barton Road. In about 400 yards you will cross the disused railway line by way of a slightly humped bridge. Turn left immediately over the bridge, following the brown ‘Waterworks Museum’ sign. In about 700 yards turn left downhill, again following the brown ‘Waterworks Museum’ sign to the parking area.  (Disregard any ‘Broomy Hill Water Works’ signs you may see these will take you to the modern operating works!)

To continue to Thruxton Court ... backtrack back across Greyfriars Bridge, but keep to the righthand lane to follow the A465 Abergavenny signs at the Asda roundabout. Keep following the A465 Abergavenny signs until you come to Lock’s Garage at Allensmore. This is a Shell garage on the righthandside, some 4 miles after the Tesco’s roundabout at Belmont. Turn right here onto the B4348, signposted Hay on Wye. In 1.4 miles turn left, signposted Abbey Dore / Cockyard ... the sign itself cannot be seen from afar as the road bears the left quite sharply at this point, but there is the usual ‘side road’ advanced warning sign. In 200 yards turn right and Thruxton Court is just beyond the church.
