Directions to Clarecraft

Postby rentawitch » Sat Jul 23, 2005 09:10 pm

I shall be approaching on the A14 from M11 and whilst I have the maps, what will the best turning be signposted?
Will the signs be up Thursday morning?

Can someone talk me through the very last stage of the trip?

Thanks

You'll go past the big junction for Woolpit, and shortly after, will see a slip road of to the left, marked Wetherden. It's a tiny turn-off, but is visible.

You follow this road past a turn for Elmswell. Don't go too fast as the turning sneaks up on you, but as soon as you reach the gate, you'll recognize the field.

That's how it was 2 years ago.

It has been signposted from the Thurday the last couple of times, as they start setting up then.

MAP

Approach fom the left of the map, along the A14 (from Bury St. Edmunds towards Stowmarket).

As Pete says, ignore the Junction for Woolpit (A1088).

Take the slip onto the 'yellow' road towards Wetherden, and the camp site is roughly where the red circle is ... perhaps a bit before.

Can't miss it ... :wink:

In previous years there have been plenty of roadside markers!

... yeah ... 90mph down the A14 and you *will* miss the turn ... :wink:

Alan's right ... after the Woolpit junction, caution is advisable.

I take it that the A14 is still littered with these piggy banks? :roll:
