Right guys and gals

I have looked at the map and this is the planned route for Saturdays drive over to Alton


Directions from Bridgwater

OK Newie and I will be convoying across from Bridgwater at about 1.30-2pm. The planned directions are as follows:

A372 from Bridgwater until we reach the A303
A303 heading in the Wincanton, Amesbury direction this cuts out Salisbury
A303 Past Andover
Right onto the A34 and head down towards Kingsworthy
Then take A31 upto Chawton and at Chawton turn left towards Alton.

If you want to join the convoy then please have a look at a map and you will see our direction.

The best thing for me to do Clive is meet you off of Junction 23 at Bridgwater. If you come off at the M5 Junction and head right around the Roundabout, you'll drive over the M5 and just as the roundabout takes you right again you will see a smallish turning off to your left. I don't think it is sign posted ?? but you will see that this turn off takes you up a very steep hill. Head up this hill and down the other side. As you come to the bottom of the hill (where it levels out) you will see a Layby off to your left, turn in here and I'll be there waiting for you
