The entrance to the Hall is on the A61 Ripon to Harrogate road – approximately three miles south of Ripon and half a mile before the Bishop Monkton and Monkton Moor crossroads. As with anything – it is easy to find when you know where to look for it!
The entrance is to the west of the A61, between two low stone walls that each bear a green Markenfield Hall sign.
We do usually have white signs 100 yards before the drive in both directions, but for some reason someone decided that they really, really loved us and really, really wanted a Markenfield sign and therefore at present we only have one… but we will have two again by the time we open in May…
One thing to remember is that Markenfield is very much C12th – and therefore we don’t always show up on Sat-Navs. If the voice from your dashboard tries to take you into Ripon or into Markington (note the spelling difference – it’s a whole different Hall!) please ignore it. The only entrance is off the A61.
