Notes for Sat Nav and Online directions

  • Not all SatNav systems locate our postcode correctly and/or can take you down some unexpected and narrow routes. If you must use SatNav, use it to Lockengate then please use our instructions above from Lockengate (or before).
  • The online route planners [such as AA, RAC and Bing] can be useful until you get to Lockengate. After Lockengate, they have so little detail that they are just plain confusing and will probably take you the wrong way. So please, please follow our instructions above from Lockengate (or before).
