Protocol

Arrival

If you are arriving by car, please park initially in the car park. After parking, proceed to Reservations who will be located in the Tower Hall just inside the door. They will give you your room keys and the code for the external doors (if you are staying in the House). At this stage, you may bring your car in front of the House or in front of the Hall to offload. Apart from offloading and packing on Sunday morning, cars must be parked in the car park for the duration of the event. Sunset over the event will be at approximately 16:00.

Departure

Bunks: Please strip your bunks and remember to take your bedding with you. If you have borrowed bedding, please return it to the Tower Hall.

Cars may be brought to the Tower or House for packing only. Please return to the car park if you are not leaving immediately so that others can do the same.

 

The site closes at 11:00.

The Chapel

The Claret Center which owns the site is a working Roman Catholic institution with a few priests living on site. They also provide services for the community. On Saturday Mass will be held in the Chapel at 09:30 and 18:30. Unless you intend to attend the service, please do not enter the Chapel at these times or disturb the Mass in any other way.

Travel

Car:

Buckden is located on the Great North Road (now the A1), giving easy access from north and south. It is also located about 5 miles south of the A14 giving easy access from east and west.

 

Train:

The site is about 5 miles from both Huntingdon and St. Neot's, both of which have stations on the East Coast Line from London to Peterborough. Taxis are readily available at both local stations.

 

Transfers from the Stations:

Due to being unable to guarantee sufficient volunteer drivers, we are unable to offer event organised pickups this year.
