Location

Venue:Churchill Inclosure and Cannop Ponds
Nearest town:Coleford
Event centre:Speech House Hotel field
Postcode:GL16 7EL
Grid reference:SO621118
Parking information:NB. In the event of bad weather with high winds, and if you are travelling from the east over the M48 bridge to Chepstow, please check that the bridge is open. If you have to use the newer bridge on the M4, you will need to add at least another 15 mins to your journey time. The event area will be Churchill Inclosure and Cannop Ponds but the event parking is on Speech House Hotel field, postcode: GL16 7EL. Grid ref: SO621118. Please be careful if you approach Speech House Hotel from the west i.e. from the junction of the B4234 and B4226, as there is an awkward right hand turn at the junction just before the hotel. It is easier to approach the car parking field from the east or south. The event will be signed from GR SO628092 east of Parkend on the B4431 and GR SO630125 west of Cinderford on the B4226. The entry and exit point into the Assembly Field will be on the minor road on the west side of the hotel. Please obey the Vehicle Management Officials’ instructions at all times. Please note: if you approach Speech House via the minor road from the south you will pass the New Fancy FC car park which is the drop off point for buses from the main event car park. PLEASE DO NOT STOP AND DISCHARGE PASSENGERS AT THIS POINT, BUT CONTINUE TO THE MAIN EVENT CAR PARK. TRAFFIC TRAVELS FAST ON THIS STRETCH OF ROAD AND THERE WILL NOT BE A MARSHALLED CROSSING POINT. The Speech House parking area is a large, flat, well-drained field. The main toilet provision will be at Assembly but there will be some limited toilet provision on the parking field. Please do not use the hotel toilets unless you are resident in the hotel. NB. Runners will be bussed from the car parking field to the event area. The bus journey is short (5 mins) but there is a walk of up to 15 mins from the drop off point to the Assembly area, which includes a marshalled crossing over a busy road. You should allow at least 45 minutes between leaving your vehicle in the car park and arrival at the assembly area.
Dog rules:Dogs are permitted on the Assembly Area only on a lead and under strict control. Dog owners are required to ensure that the forest and car park areas are clear of dog deposits.

Details

Description:Cannop Ponds is typical Forest of Dean undulating, mixed deciduous and evergreen woodland with a number of ditches and streams, and evidence of mining in the NW and E parts of the map. There is a good path network, and despite some bramble growth run-ability is good. The terrain contains some crags and minor water features, some ruined fences and Forestry Commission timber stacks in some parts. You are asked to take care in the vicinity of these features and not to climb on timber stacks, which can be unstable.
