We were out walking near Cirencester today so thought we'd divert to wander past the club site to see how things looked.

Well, not sure if this is good news or bad, but the access road has been diverted.. 

So - good news - for anyone with a pothole aversion - it's been resurfaced and the tarmac is now billiard table smooth (apart from the inevitable speed humps!)

Not such good news - instead of a long straight road with plenty of wide stretches to allow for units to pass it is now very narrow and winding, with large boulders each side at the entrance and just a couple of small lay bys for passing, so heaven help you if you meet another unit coming in or out.

I can't see any practical alternative to the "off by 12 and no arrivals before 1" arrangement. We'll just have to wait and see - well, not us obviously! wink

Sorry HD, I've been out all day, not poring over CT - better things to do and all that. Is there another thread about it? Do tell. frown

The other thread is now broken though. I can't get in at all, server errors every way I try and open it.

These are the photos though. I saved them.😀

Same thing here - I can now see the heading but can't read it at all because of server errors - don't suppose you're any good at fixing them,  Husky? laughing

Edit - thanks for posting the pictures Steve. I know you're familiar with Cirencester too. Take my word for it, the road is not as wide as those make it look! surprised

What's the point of those large rocks? If they are to stop people going on the 'grass' then surly a small kerb would be better than those outfit destroyers? (unless they are made of foam and painted to look like rocks)

Those corners look very tight for even a smallish van, 8ft wide twin axles beware!

What makes it even worse is I can't believe the rocks are low enough to allow the rear end of the van to oversail.

Not sure how one would cope arriving at 2pm and meeting two MHs going out for the afternoon! surprised

The access road is shared with the college and the tennis and cricket clubs too! Can't begin to imagine what it's going to be like on a summer Friday afternoon!
