We use the facilities of Halifax Rugby Union Football Club at Illingworth on the A629. This is approximately 2.5 miles from the town centre behind Moorside Junior School. The entry road is just past the school and before Moorside Garage.

Please do not send them any correspondence intended for us.

The road leading down to our ground is directly opposite the Moorside Club (formerly Illingworth Liberal Club). In 2009 this road sprouted signs overnight reading "Holly Park Way", a name no doubt steeped in rich local tradition.

You may drive past Illingworth Sports Club, home of Illingworth RLFC. That is NOT our location - we're further down the road towards Halifax.

From Halifax town centre:

Take the A629 north towards Keighley. After about 2.5 miles, you'll see a sign on your right for Moorside Garage, just after a Tesco Express/Esso garage and a zebra crossing. Turn right into this road, and drive down into the grounds of Halifax RUFC.

If you pass a Morrison's supermarket on your left, you've gone too far.

From north of Halifax:

Get onto the A629 and follow it southwards towards Halifax town centre. Look out for a Morrison's supermarket on your right. When you pass it, continue straight on.

After about 300 yards, you'll see a sign on your left for Moorside Garage, just before a zebra crossing and just before a school. Turn left into this road, and drive down into the grounds of Halifax RUFC. If you pass a Tesco Express/Esso garage on your right, you've gone too far.
