Directions From The East

Coming from the East, isn't to bad as you don't have very far to travel. Find your way onto the A14 and head for Cambridge the follow the directions below:

  1. Travel past Cambridge towards the A14/M11 junction, stay on the dual carriageway and and head towards Bedford on the A428. The dual carriageway only lasts for another mile or so and heads up a hill, which is a pleasant change from the flat fen land you'll have just left.
  2. This bit of map from multimap shows you where you want to be heading. After getting onto the A428 you'll pass a series of roundabouts, keep going. When you hit the new dual carriageway watch out for the signs for the new Cambourne Junction. Take the Cambourne slip road, at the roundabout at the top of the slip road turn right over the A428 and at the next roundabout take the Elsworth exit to the left.
  3. Drive down the twisty road in to the village of Elsworth. At the T-Junction in Elsworth turn left towards Papworth Everard.
  4. You will pass a small wood on your left followed by some large farm buildings and a couple of houses. The entrance to the site is a concrete track just after a gentle left hand bend.
  5. The launch area is along the concrete track which makes several very sharp left and right turns. Please drive with caution. We use a patch of grass by the concrete track for launching. As you approach please slow down and wait to be waved on by any Range Safety Officer or Marshall. They will be wearing a hi-vis Jerkin.
