 IF WALKING from the Bus Station, turn Right on the road outside the Bus Station, go over the cross-roads, and continue walking in a straight line towards the Railway Station. You will arrive in Frideswide Square just before you reach the Station.




(including access from Bristol/Swindon A420)

Leave the A34 at the Botley Interchange, and turn down the hill towards Oxford. You will be confronted by MacDonalds. It is easier to turn RIGHT at these traffic lights, followed by an IMMEDIATE LEFT, keeping MacDonalds on your left. Travel 300 yards southwards, and join North Hinksey Lane at a cross-roads. Continue south (ie straight on), the Hall being on the left after House No 34. Parking is behind the Hall.


Please note:

If using the lane by car when leaving, turn RIGHT at the sharp bend, and then
turn LEFT around MacDonalds in order to reach the traffic lights.
