Directions From The North

If you live in the North West then you have two options, one is to come down the M6 or the M1 and then follow the directions from the West. The other is to cross over onto the A1 and follow the directions below:

  1. Come off the A1 on the new 4 lane motorway section after Peterborough, signposted for Cambridge, this takes you onto the A14. On this section of map from multimap the turning is where the blue motorway forks toward Huntingdon, which is where you want to be heading.
  2. As you travel round Huntingdon you will get to the Godmanchester junction where you want to leave the A14. Turn right onto the A1198 and head for Papworth Everard.
  3. Just as you reach Papworth Everard you want to turn left at the large roundabout just before Papworth Everard onto the B1040. This bit of map from multimap is a close up of Papworth showing where you need to turn off.
  4. Follow the B1040 for about half a mile and then turn right onto the Rogues Lane towards the village of Elsworth.
  5. You drive for about a mile up a gentle rise at the top of which the road bears to the right. The entrance to the site is a concrete track just after the bend on the right hand side. If you pass a couple of houses and some large farm buildings on your right followed by a small wood (not to be confused by some buildings of a similar description before the gentle rise) then you have gone too far..
  6. 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.
