(you need to type in the start and destination)

Simple Directions:
1) Start on Ashton New Road
2) At the SportCity junction, turn left at the traffic lights onto the A6010
3) Turn right onto Alan Turing Way
4) Get yourself on to the A62 from there, it isn't hard.
5) After about 1.5 miles on the A62 turn left onto the A663
Speed Camera along A663
6) Carry on onto the A627(M)
7) Then after about 3 miles, take the 3rd exit at the roundabout onto the M62
8) After about 30 miles on the motorway, take junction 29 and continue forward following the signs for Hull
9) Leave the M62 at junction 35 and join the M18 motorway, after about 25 miles.
10) Leave the M18 at junction 5, then keep left to join the M180
11) After 12 more miles come off the M180 at junction 3, and join the M181
12) At Frodingham Grange roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the A18
13) This then leaves you on Doncaster Road

This is the best place to park up or to go to the pub etc...

Milage:
87 miles

Best Pub:
The Parkinson Arms, after coming off the M181 take a right at the next roundabout. It's near the town centre but it's probably the best away pub there is. Then go up the hill and take the second left, follow your way into town and you can't miss it. Put your car in any of the nearby car parks. Overall, it's a pretty decent pub and they serve some good food.
