From all directions
pick up the A19 northbound, exiting onto the A172 signposted Stokesley. Stay
on this road for approximately 6 miles past the Swainby and Potto and Faceby
village turnings to the signpost for CARLTON, (if you reach Stokesley and a
roundabout you have gone too far…!) Turn right at the Carlton sign and after
1/3 mile you will be in the village itself. Drive through to where the road
forks, continue straight on and up the hill, do not follow the road as it
bends and continues to the right.
After a mile of steep uphill you will start to drop down slightly where
there is a cattle grid and the Lord Stones Café to your left. The cafe is
concealed in the hillside and not easy to spot from the roadside. Markers
will be placed at the turning.
