Location

We normally meet at at Churchdown School, Winston Road, Gloucester, GL3 2RB

Link to Google Map showing where we meet.

This is how to find us:

Approaching from Gloucester - Leave Gloucester heading towards Cheltenham. At the roundabout with the Northern By-pass take the B4063 marked to Churchdown. In about 1 mile take a right hand turn (at the first set of traffic lights) into Pirton Lane. There's a petrol station on the corner. If you pass the Police Station (on your left) you've missed the Pirton Lane turning.

Approaching from Cheltenham - Leave Cheltenham heading towards Gloucester. Rather than continuing to the M5 junction 11 take the B4063 marked to Insworth and Churchdown. Pass DOWTY on the right and in about 2 miles turn LEFT, at the second set of traffic lights and shortly after the Police Station (which is on your right) and immediately before a petrol station, into Pirton Lane.

Once in Pirton Lane continue for about 1 mile, the road gradually rises. Cross the bridge over the A40 and at the second mini roundabout (those stupid things painted on the road) turn left into Winston Road.

Once in Winston Road there's another roundabout (a proper one this time) about a hundred yards ahead. Take care here and watch the road markings. Go straight across, you can see the school from here.

As soon as you enter the school gates turn right and follow the road. It ends in a turning circle from which a path leads to our meeting room. There's plenty of parking along the side of this road.

Walk down the path from the turning circle and we're about 20 yards on your left in the science lab.

We look forward to seeing you.

P.S. Please ask for Steve and let me know if you managed to follow my directions.
