The club is located at Southmill Lock, on the River Stort near Bishop's Stortford.
The clubhouse can be reached on foot/bike by following the towpath along the river southwards from Bishops Stortford. It is next to Southmill Lock, about 1 mile from the town centre. (N.B. the towpath swaps to the other side of the river when the river meets London Road. If approaching the clubhouse along the river from the south (Pig Lane / Twyford Lock), please make sure you are on the towpath with the river on your left.
To drive to the club, leave Bishop's Stortford southwards on the A1060 (Hallingbury Road). Turn off the main road into Styleman's Lane, a very small turning on the right, just after the "Welcome to Essex" and national speed limit signs, and just before Haigh's yard (formerly Darlington's Aggregates). For navigation purposes only, the turning from the main road is located at postcode CM22 7QJ. Continue through the gates along the private single-track lane until you reach the club's small private car park immediately beside the clubhouse, alongside the river.
IMPORTANT: Follow the directions above rather than the ones given by GoogleMaps - despite what GoogleMaps thinks, there really is no public footpath from Twyford Road / Twyfordbury Lane and you cannot get across the river from there.
If you will need an accessible parking space for your visit, please do ask for one to be reserved for you. You may wish to review the Access Checklist for our premises.
Public transport is relatively limited on a Sunday when much of the activity at the club takes place.
