Recent flood damage to narrow roads and road works in Sandy Lane and Giantswood Lane have restricted access to Clonter from Exit 17 of the M6 and from Congleton.  If you are able to approach Clonter Opera Theatre via Holmes Chapel and Lower Withington OR via Siddington and Lower Withington, this is recommended. However, if you allow extra time, it is possible to access via the A34, coming up Rood Hill, and then taking the first turning left (There SHOULD be a diversion sign there) down Smithy Lane to Hulme Walfield, and then turn right onto Giantswood Lane at the T Junction – You will then be back on track.ignposted Somerford and Congleton. Clonter Opera Theatre is one mile along this road, after the Black Swan on the right and the minor cross roads.
