DIRECTIONS TO CHELWOOD
Directions from Bristol: – Taking the A37 south out of Bristol turn left at the Chelwood Roundabout onto the A368 after Pensford. Travel through Chelwood Village and the campsite entrance is on the left hand side approximately 0.3 mile from the Old Post Office. The entrance will be marked with signing on the day.
Directions from Bath: – Taking the A39 out of Bath bear right onto A368 at Marksbury. The campsite is approximately 1.5 miles on the right hand side. The entrance will be marked with signing on the day.
Traffic Management: – If you have to drop someone off at the shooting field due to the narrow entrance width priority will be given to those entering the campsite. The A368 has a 50 mph speed limit at this location and you should therefore be aware that turning right into and out of the campsite pose the greater risk. We would advise that were possible arrangements are made in accordance with POR for Scouts from the same unit to travel together; thus reducing the number of vehicles attending.
