Wakefield Morris Contact Information 2016/17The current team practise every MONDAY from September through to May at:
If you're coming via the M1 motorway then either junction 39 or 40 is the turn you want as Horbury is between the two. For those with a compass the village is to the west of the motorway. Arriving from the Ossett end of the village head down the High street and when the road divides near the pizza shop and cafe take the right hand fork into Cluntergate. Approaching along the bypass, aka Dewsbury Road, look out for Lockwoods convenience store which sits opposite the junction that is Cluntergate. Theoretically the sessions start at 8:00pm and go on until 10:00. From May through July the team generally take a tour of pubs in the area, see the diary pages for details. And in August the team go on holiday, which occasionally may involve dancing.
When in Horbury a select few will generally retire for a well earned pint after practise. This means that if you just want a chat rather than, or indeed before, plucking up courage to come to the hall at least one or two team members can be found in "The Cricketers" on Cluntergate in Horbury any time after 10:00 on a Monday in the autumn and winter.
