Met League – Welwyn – Sat 11 Nov 2017

The next cross country fixture is the Metropolitan League at Stanborough Park, Welwyn Garden City, AL8 6DF. NB: This is the venue postcode but do not use it for sat nav purposes, as it will take you to the town centre.

We will be running a minibus to this event. Please contact team managers (listed below) for a place on the bus. The minibus will leave at 10:30am prompt from Stockdove Way.

Course Location: North Side Stanborough Park. See League website for further details.

Public Transport: Welwyn Garden City Station (Main Line) 1¼ mile

Parking: There is a fairly large car park on the north side of the Park, adjacent to the course. There is a very large car park on the south side of the Park, 5 minutes walk to the course. These car parks are ‘Pay & Display’. You must display a ticket or you may incur a fine. We have negotiated a reduced rate of £1.50.

Directions from major roads: Leave the A1(M) at Junction 4, (after the Hatfield Tunnel). At the roundabout take the second exit to A414/A6129. At the next roundabout take the first exit A6129. At the bottom of the dual carriageway take the second exit out of the roundabout. The entrance to the car park on the north side is on your left after around 100m. The entrance to the car park on the south side is more or less opposite but you cannot gain access from the left side of the carriageway. Access to both of these car parks is only permitted from the adjacent side of the carriageway. If you cannot find a space on the north side, to get to the south side you must drive to the roundabout at the top of the hill and return on the other side of the carriageway. YOU MUST OBEY THE TRAFFIC SIGNS.

As early arrivers will undoubtedly fill the car park on the north side, you may be advised to go straight to the one on the south side.

There is a footpath under the road bridge, providing traffic-free access between the south side and the north side of the Park.
