If you are planning a visit:
- By automobile, take the A1 motorway south out of Doncaster. After you pass thru Elkesley parish, the second exit should be West Drayton.
- Ian S. has a photograph of the old Great North Road thru the village centre on Geo-graph, taken in July, 2012. As you can see, it is a lot quieter than the nearby A1 trunk road.
