Parking information:Parking and registration at The Blue School, Kennion Rd, Wells, BA5 2NR. Entrance at what3words: https://w3w.co/camper.releasing.ruins , closest grid ref ST543461. As the Blue School has a leavers’ party on the evening of our event, we have been asked not to use the main car park, but to proceed to the basketball courts further inside the premises. So once you’ve turned right off Kennion Road into the main car park, follow the O-signs downhill and then to the left. Please drive slowly as it may be busy with students being dropped off.
Dog rules:Unfortunately dogs are not permitted in the school grounds.
