From all directions exit M11 at Junction 8 (please note that junction 8 now has two exits, the first – signposted for Bishop’s Stortford and the Motorway Services is the one you want). On the M11 roundabout take 2nd exit (1st exit is for the services only). Within 200yds is another roundabout. Take 1st exit. After about 400yds take first right (opposite the golf club) into Industrial Estate and follow the road around to your right.

The ground and car park (£1 entrance) are straight ahead. To ensure a parking space arrive at least 30 minutes before kick off. Time-wise, the ground is just three minutes drive from Junction 8.

If travelling from the A10. From the A10 take the roundabout exit marked for Bishop’s Stortford A120. Proceed along the A120 following signs for Bishop’s Stortford and then the M11, travelling through Standon and then straight on at the Little Hadham traffic lights.

At the next roundabout, now on the outskirts of the town, do not follow signs into the town centre but continue around the by-pass (A120) still following M11 signs. Go straight over at the next roundabout (Stansted Mountfitchet & Saffron Walden left, Bishop’s Stortford right) and proceed up the hill through the woods still on the A120.

At the next roundabout (you will see the M11 junction roundabout just ahead of you) – take the last exit. This is the Dunmow Road. Proceed for a few hundred yards (golf club on your left) and take the first turning on the right.

For those who wish to visit the market town of Bishop’s Stortford, do not turn right into Industrial Estate but carry straight on. This is called Dunmow Road. Do not turn off. Come to traffic lights at crossroads (Hockerill) and go straight on 200yds down the hill. Then bear right at the mini-roundabout and the entrance to a multi-storey car park (Jackson Square) is on your left.

When leaving the car park, the one way system takes you to a set of traffic lights. Turn right and get in left hand lane. Go straight on at mini-roundabout and up the hill to the Hockerell crossroads and traffic lights. Go straight on up the Dunmow Road back to the ground now on your left.
