Yes, free entry on the show days if you can show a membership card, for the holder only not family or friends.

Not sure I ever had one of those, mind you?

Well, that just shows how much my memory has deteriorated. It is safely tucked away in my wallet.

Nurse?.... :grin:

A quick mention that Creephedge Lane - the road running past the entrance - is currently closed to the north of Hyde Hall whilst they replace the water main with a series of rather confusing diversion signs. But you can access the entrance from the A132 south end of Creephedge lane, despite the signs saying road closed (the sign saying access to Hyde Hall is almost invisible!).
