Event Reminder and Information
Waltham Chase MCC are holding a three-day Camping Weekend from Friday the 19th through to Sunday the 21st July.
Driving and parking instructions: Please note this is the only route due to local road works:
Leave the M27 Motorway at Junction 1
Take the B3079 towards Brook
After ¼ mile look out for the ORANGE arrows.
Make a sharp right-hand turn into Wittensford lane.
Now enter post code SO40 2NT into your sat nav., but not before, as you will be taken the wrong way.
At the end of Wittensford Lane turn left into Kewlake Lane.
Drive along Kewlake Lane and look out for ORANGE arrows on your right.
Drive through the gate, closing it behind you.
Then drive along track to venue.
(If you are towing a caravan there is a separate entrance to the venue, please give me a call for details. If towing a large caravan, it is recommended to approach Wittensford lane from the direction of Brook, due to the sharp turn into Wittensford Lane)
