FIXTURE INFORMATION

Fixture 1: Claybury, Woodford. 13th October 2018

Directions Set in beautiful parkland this venue is very popular. The various courses are predominately made of undulating paths of grass and usually hard soil in open areas for easy spectating in many locations. There is a small wooded section which is where the main climb of the venue is located. The whole course is suitable for spikes however trainers are a good option if the ground is hard which it tends to be at Claybury.

These car parks operate by automatic number plate recognition. You must pay or you may incur a fine. Unfortunately we have not been able to negotiate a reduced rate this year, a list of the charges are published adjacent to this. It is a good idea to share cars and share costs. If you choose to park on the local roads, please park considerately and avoid causing any annoyance to residents.
YOU ARE ADVISED TO ALLOW SUFFICIENT TIME TO PARK AND PAY
There is a footpath under the road bridge, providing traffic-free access between the south side and the north side of the Park.
Access to both of these car parks is only permitted from the adjacent side of the carriageway. If you cannot find a space on the north side, to get to the south side you must drive to the roundabout at the top of the hill and return on the other side of the carriageway.
YOU MUST OBEY THE TRAFFIC SIGNS
Directions from major roads: Leave the A1(M) at Junction 4, (after the Hatfield Tunnel). At the roundabout take the second exit to A414/A6129. At the next roundabout take the first exit A6129. At the bottom of the dual carriageway take the second exit out of the roundabout. The entrance to the car park on the north side is on your left after around 100m. The entrance to the car park on the south side is more or less opposite but you cannot gain access from the left side of the carriageway.
As early arrivers will undoubtedly fill the car park on the north side, you may be advised to go straight to the one on the south side.
