Telephone +44 (0)1753 683872
Come off the M4 at junction 5 and head for Colnbrook, ie. heading East towards London on the A4, and then Horton. You will pass a BP garage on your left; there is a set of traffic lights by the garage. At these lights you want to be in the right-hand lane to enable you to be in the correct lane to enter the roundabout and take the first exit leaving a car sale garage on your left. In approximately ¾ mile you will come to another BP garage on your right, follow the road around the hairpin bend and the club entrance is approximately ½ mile on your right.
An alternative route to the club is via M25 junction 14 (Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 exit) via Poyle and Horton, ie. opposite direction to Terminal 4.
– If travelling clockwise (heading towards M4) take the first exit on the overhead roundabout at M25 J14, signposted Poyle and Datchet.
– If travelling anticlockwise (heading towards M3) take the fourth exit on the overhead roundabout at M25 J14, signposted Poyle and Datchet.
At next small roundabout (approx 300 metres) take first exit and stay on that road for 2 miles until you enter Horton village; having passed the pub and church on your left, 100 metres beyond the church turn right. Follow road for 1 mile and the club entrance is on your left. (Note – if there has been a lot of rain this route can have large amounts of water in places extending a long way across the road. The water can be quite deep.)
