Directions to Venues
We use two training venues. The main one is the Friends’ School which is used for most Saturday training sessions and we also use Wimbish Airfiled where we can cycle on tarmac without any traffic to worry about.
Directions to Friends’ School
From the traffic light cross roads in the town centre, drive south up the hill past the War Memorial and when you get to the mini round_about at the top of the High Street turn left into Debden Road. Proceed up the hill and take the third left into Mount Pleasant Road. The school car park is via the third entrance on the right. The large building on the left hand side is the gym and we register here. Use the doors where the gym building meets the older buildings.
Look out for the old Water Tower which is in the school grounds and is a recognisable landmark. Should you get lost, do ask - most people in Saffron Walden will be able to direct you to Friends’ School.
Directions to Wimbish Airfield
The easiest way to find it from the Friends’ School is to go down the hill to the Leisure Centre and turn right onto the Thaxted Road. Take the right turn just after the Barracks into Water Lane, sign posted for Debden. Go past the main entrance to the Barracks on the right and after about 200m turn right into the Airfield. When we are training the gate will be open and marshaled to stop other people driving in. Please park on the tarmac area next the playing fields after you have turned left just past the gate.
