what3words for the car park entrance: shady.eyelash.starfish

We are on the main road so we are easy to find, look out for the ‘Pant’ road signs as you enter the village from either direction on the A483.

From Oswestry; look for the pedestrian crossing and the McColls store on the right. The hall is the single-storey building next on your left with the car park entrance at the far end. The red phone box is a good landmark – and it works! If you see the Cross Guns pub, you’ve missed us. Here’s the sign at the car park entrance.

From Llanymnech or Welshpool: Go past the Cross Guns pub which will be on your left, and round the bend. The hall is on your right just after the Tregarthen Lane/Station Road cross roads. Look out for the artwork and planters on this end of the building.

If you’ve come down the minor lanes from the east to Pant, you’ll emerge either from Rhiew Revel Lane or Station Road. Turn right from both. There is no road route into Pant from the west, you’ll arrive on the A483 in Llanymynech (turn left) or Llynclys (turn right).

Approximate travel times to Pant in normal traffic conditions: Oswestry 10 minutes. Welshpool 20 minutes, Shrewsbury 30 minutes, Chester 60 minutes, Wrexham 40 minutes.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

(Apologetic cough)

Buses serving Pant as at August 2020 are as follows – as you see the service is very limited, especially since the cancellation of the 72.

  • T12 Oswestry – Machynlleth (both onwards travel to Wrexham and free weekend schemes are currently suspended). About every 2 hours Mon-Sat, finishing early evening. Please see the Trawscymru website for up to date information.
  • Bus 74 Llanfyllin to Shrewsbury: Tanat Valley bus service, one a day each way. Timetables on this link.
  • Bus 71 Four Crosses to Oswestry: Arriva West Midlands, one a day each way in term times as this is the school service.

If you do get the bus, here’s where to catch it:

  • From the north, buses stop either by the hall or on the corner of Station Road – just ask to be set down and wave to be picked up.
  • From the south, there is an official bus stop on the other side of the road, just south of Tregarthen Lane.

The return fare from Oswestry is £3.40 as at January 2020.

Our nearest railway station is Gobowen –  around 8 miles away and because this is Shropshire, in normal traffic conditions the drive takes around 15 minutes. And perhaps because this is Shropshire, there is no bus service from the station – you’ll need a taxi. If you are determined to get to the hall from a railway station, go to Shrewsbury and take the Arriva 70 or 576 services to Oswestry, then either wait for a bus or arrange a taxi.

If you are planning to cycle, we recommend that you use the local roads rather than the A483 which has no cycle lane (and often no pavement).
