At the next set of traffic lights stay in your right hand lane(veering left) then at the next set turn right (you will now be opposite the 'Fox & Hounds Pub') get in your middle lane following the road signs for 'Town Centre' At the next set of traffic lights (the 'Aqueduct Pub' will be on your right hand side a few yards up) head straight on past the 'Aqueduct pub' that will be on your right and follow this road all the way into the 'Town Centre'.
Once you pass under 'Blackburn Bridge' (Blue and Yellow painted) you will head straight on (which is 'Mincing Lane'). Follow the one way traffic straight on past a 'Zebra Crossing' and a 'Kwik Fit Garage' (on your left) and stop at the next set of traffic lights ('Bar Ibiza' will be on your left, and 'The Chippery' chip shop will be ahead).
