Getting there:

You can avoid most of the town centre tourist traffic as the church is on the NW outskirts of the town.
From the south (A591)
Avoid Keswick centre by following directions for the A66 (West) towards Workington. Leave the A66 at the Crosthwaite roundabout (see below) taking the first exit.
From the east (A66)
Leave the A66 at the Crosthwaite roundabout (see below) taking the first exit.
From the north (A591)
Take the second exit off the Crosthwaite roundabout.
At the Crosthwaite roundabout continue into Keswick until a T-junction is reached. Turn right onto the B5289. Turn first right (brown tourist sign to church), as the main road bends to the left, and immediately left. The church is straight ahead.
From the west (A66)
Take the B5289 turn to Keswick and turn off left, as you enter the 30mph zone, and immediately left again.
