  3. Junction of Garrs Lane/Gill Fold (allowing normal access into and out of Gills fold from Garrs Lane).
  4. End of Broughton Fold (by Grassington House).


  • Barriers at the junction of Main Street/Hebden Road will be manned by responsible stewards. They will allow vehicular access in and out of Broughton Fold for residents and their visitors and for access to Grassington House that have booked in advance. Stewards will accompany vehicles through the closure wearing high vis clothing.
  • Access to Gills Fold will be possible, as usual, via Garrs Lane if approached from the top of the village.
  • Signage will be in place at both the bottom and top of the village to direct vehicles.
