From the Cambridge area, travel west to the A1 and leave the A1 at the B658/A6001/A1 (Sainsbury’s) roundabout on the west side of Biggleswade taking the B658 signed Shefford. At next roundabout take 1st exit B658 Shefford.  Turn right into Southill and follow signs to the village of  Ireland, passing the Black Horse. Bear left and keep left, continuing to the crossroads with the A600. Go straight ahead and park in the field on the right hand side of Northwood End Road.
