Where we are

The temple is in West Knighton, just inside the southern part of the A563 ring road - the Asquith Way section.

Turning Wheel Buddhist Temple
7 Chadderton Close
West Knighton

Getting here by car

We are just over 10 minutes drive from M1 Junction 21 (traffic permitting); take the A563 south ring road. If you are coming from the north on the A46/A607 you can take the ring road to the east of the city.

If heading anti-clockwise on the A563 ring road, turn left into Aberdale Road at the traffic lights on the Asquith Way part of the south ring road (after the "Pork Pie" roundabout and the Windley Road roundabout). If heading clockwise this will be a right turn at the traffic lights after crossing Welford Road. At the junction there are a Co-operative Food and a Tesco Express on opposite sides of Aberdale Road.

Towards the far end of Aberdale Road, turn left into Cairnsford Road. At the end go straight across to Woodcroft Avenue. At the end of Woodcroft Avenue turn right, and Chadderton Close is the first road on the right. Turn right at the T-junction within Chadderton Close, and the temple is the last house on the right.

There is quite a bit of off-road parking at the temple. There is not much on-road parking in Chadderton Close, but plenty on Pendlebury Drive, opposite the entrance to Chadderton Close. Please be considerate of our neighbours when parking, particularly avoiding the turning areas at the end of the close.
