It is always best to approach The Stoneworks via Shepton Mallet as the inner ring road
and signage in Wells are dire.
From Shepton Mallettake the A37 north past Matthew Clark and the Mulberry Factory Shop, continue up, down and out of Shepton Mallet, up the hill and past the turning onto the A367(do not take this turning – stay on the A37) and then look out for The Old Mendip Inn on your right (3 miles from Shepton Mallet). Immediately past The Old Mendip Inn take the turning to the left onto the B3135 towards Cheddar.
Follow this road for 2 miles until you come to a cross roads where you have to stop and turn left onto the B3139 towards Horrington. After about half a mile you will pass a pub on your left (The Slab House Inn) and 400 yards further on turn right into a lane (Haydon Drove) signposted to The Stoneworks. If you start descending the hill down towards Wells and West Horrington you have gone too far.
We are about 400 yards down the lane on the right immediately before a sharp left hand turn.
If you must approach from Wells then if we start at the first roundabout on the western edge of Wells,
by Tincknells the agricultural merchants and the Sherston Inn, take a deep breath as you are just
to negotiate the infamous Wells inner ring road!
Take the first exit left at this first roundabout towards Bath A39/Bristol A37. Go straight over the first set of traffic lights (through traffic) and then at the second traffic lights turn right still following Bath A39/ Bristol A37.
Keep straight ahead through a sequence of four sets of lights (pedestrian/traffic/traffic/pedestrian) and then move to the right hand lane ready to turn right following the sign to The Horringtons B3139. At the mini roundabout turn left, again towards The Horringtons B3139, follow the road through a sharp right and then a sharp left turn and then on the next sharp right turn you need to turn left (actually more like straight on),
again signposted to The Horringtons B3139.
If you have got this far unscathed you can now begin to relax as you are on the right road out of Wells. Follow
the road out of the city and climb the long hill to the top of the Mendip hills (do not turn off to West Horrington
as we are not actually in the village). As the road flattens at the very top of the hill look out for a turning to the
left (Haydon Drove) signposted to The Stoneworks. Take this left turn and we are about 400 yards down the
lane onthe right as the road turns sharp left.
If you reach a pub on your right called The Slab House Inn you have gone too far.
The Stoneworks is about 3 miles from the centre of Wells.
