Directions From The West

Depending on how far West you live you want to try and get onto the A14, the M6 and the M1 both join the A14 at it's start, so if you can get to one of those then you're sorted. Once onto the A14 follow the directions below:

  1. Stay on the A14 until you reach Huntingdon where you will find yourself at a big roundabout. Turn right and stay on the A14 heading towards Cambridge. This section of map from multimap gives you an overview of 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.
