The cottage is best approached by leaving Wirksworth Market Place along Cromford Road and up Steeple Grange. Take the right hand at the War Memorial onto New Road and continue to the top. At the junction turn right then keep going for a few hundred meters until you find 11a Little Bolehill on your right hand side. There is a turning circle at the end of this lane, so it is best to turn around here and you should then be able to park opposite the property next to the wall.
