Parking in Denshaw is limited. If you are travelling by car, we advise you to arrive early and park on either Oldham Road or Ripponden Road. There will be parking restrictions marked by traffic cones around the centre of the village so you will need to park a little further along these roads. You should not park on Huddersfield Road as it will be closed to traffic for the duration of the Contest.

Some seating is provided but this is limited. If you wish to sit down, it would be a good idea to bring a portable folding chair.

Denshaw is well-served with pubs and places to eat on Contest day. Alcoholic and soft drinks are available at the Oddfellows Club (5 Huddersfield Rd, Denshaw OL3 5SD), the Junction Inn (2 Rochdale Road, Denshaw OL3 5SE) and the Printer’s Arms (20 Oldham Rd, Denshaw OL3 5SN).

Hot snacks are available at the Oddfellows Club. If you prefer a more substantial meal or some ‘pub grub’, you can dine at the Junction Inn (01457 874265) or the Printer’s Arms (01457 874248). Booking ahead is recommended as demand is normally high.

Toilets are available at the Oddfellows Club.
