Written instructions

Cycling:

– Cycle out of Murray Edwards Porters’ Lodge onto the Huntingdon Road and turn right, going into the far left lane
– Turn left at the traffic lights and follow the first road (Victoria Road) on the left
– Follow Victoria Road all the way down until you see a big red shop called Staples – there is a one way/roundabout system so you just follow it round, taking the right lane
– After the traffic lights, take the left lane and follow the left turn onto Chesterton Road
– When you see a green/blue bike shop on the opposite side of the road, turn right and go onto Hamilton Road
– Follow Hamilton Road, which will bend left, and turn right when you reach Pretoria Road
– Go straight down Pretoria Road, and turn right and enter the gate, just before the footbridge

Walking:

– Walk out of Murray Edwards Porters’ Lodge and turn right onto the Huntingdon Road
– Cross the road opposite Chestnut House
– Turn 90 degrees clockwise and cross the road again. You should be on the right hand side of Victoria Road now.
– Follow Victoria Road all the way down. On the way you will see on your right a takeaway shop, then a convenience shop (on the right), a church (on the left), a wine shop (on the right) and finally an architecture firm (on the right). You’ll have to cross a few small roads. Don’t go down any of them.
– You should come to a bigger junction and see a big red building – this is Staples. Cross the road and turn right, and follow the red Staples building around. You will turn left and see the front doors and then the way to its car park etc. Now keep walking straight on, cross one small road and leave Staples behind, until you come to the first set of zebra crossings going to your right.
– Cross at the zebra crossing so you get to the little triangle pedestrian bit in the middle of the road. Then take the left hand zebra crossing to reach the other side of the road. (about a 45 degree anticlockwise turn). Now you should be on right hand side of Chesterton Road.
– Walk straight on. You should see restaurants and a bakery on the right on your side of the street, and a Co-op on the opposite side of the street. If you cross a bridge, you’ve gone the wrong way. Keep walking until you pass a pub and then a green/blue bike shop on the corner.
– Turn right at that corner – you’re now on Hamilton Road.
– Follow Hamilton Road, which will bend left, and turn right when you reach Pretoria Road
– Go straight down Pretoria Road, and turn right and enter the gate just before the footbridge. Don’t go over the footbridge!
