From Tetbury, Cirencester (A4135) or Nailsworth, Stroud (A46)

From Tetbury take the A4135 to Dursley. From Nailsworth, take the B4058 through Horsley until it joins the A4135, where you turn left. Then in all cases, follow the A4135 through the woods above Dursley. As the road starts to descend into the town, you will see the Dursley sign at the side of the road.

Access to site
If there is a function on, the right hand gate will be open. Drive through this gate and follow the track through the site, through a wooden gate and round to the right, until you see a compound of buildings. Park outside this compound by the fence.
If the gate is not open you can still access the site at any time, using the pedestrian/disables access gate to the left of the main gates. Park your car outside the gates, ensuring that you do NOT park in front of the right hand gate, as access may be needed at any time. There is also plenty of room to park along the side of the lane, although it is advisable to keep to the Breakheart side only, to avoid blocking the lane.
