Following heavy rain, there are some extraordinary road conditions. Click here for special info on avoiding our local puddles.
From Ripon & Thirsk
Approach Masham on the A6108. The town and church come into view. Immediately before you cross Masham Bridge over the river Ure, take the right turn, signposted to High Burton.
From the bridge, follow this road for just over a mile, first passing a large house and cottages on the left and continuing on past a right hand turn. You will soon see a large house and farm buildings coming up on the left hand side with Yoredale Veterinary Practice on the roadside and an ArtisOn sign on the front of the adjacent barn.
Approaching Masham on the southbound A6108, ignore signs to the town centre on your right and continue down the tree-lined avenue towards Masham Bridge over the river Ure. Turn left immediately at the far side of the bridge and follow the instructions from Ripon above.
From A1 Northbound
If travelling northbound on the A1, the Masham exit shown on most older maps is now closed. You need to exit at junction 50, signposted A61 for Ripon and Thirsk, then follow signs to Masham, approaching Masham on the A6267. Once the A6267 joins the A6108, continue for a short distance until you reach Masham Bridge where you should turn right immediately before the bridge and follow the instructions from Ripon above.
From A1 Southbound
If travelling southbound on the A1 you should exit at Leeming Bar – signed for Northallerton and Bedale with a brown sign for Masham. Be prepared though, there is a new bypass around Bedale. Follow signs for Masham (when you get into Bedale Main Street look out for the right turn beside the Fish & Chip shop – the sign isn’t obvious!) Follow the A6268 until the T junction with A6267 coming from the A1, turn right and following the A6267 which joins the A6108 as described above. Turn right just before Masham Bridge over the river Ure and follow the instructions from Ripon above.
Parking at ArtisOn
You should turn into the entrance between the vets and the barn to enter ArtisOn’s yard and main parking area. We have ample free parking at ArtisOn but we like to ensure that our parking does not inconvenience our neighbours. So, please ensure you park within the courtyard rather than in front of the vets on the main road (except on Sundays when there’s no surgery). On busy days we usually have someone to greet you and help you get parked – some double parking is usually needed but all workshops finish at the same time so usually does not cause any issues. Let us know if you need to be parked to enable a quick getaway. If necessary, we can overflow a small number of cars into the farmyard next door – park against the stone barn on the left of the entrance.
