For uniform and youth group visits, the arrival site may be the Old Barn Education Centre at Westbrook Hay or the Box Moor Trust Centre on London Road, depending on the activity selected. You will be advised about the arrival site prior to your visit. These sites are marked on the map below and clear directions are given in ‘Your Visit to the Box Moor Trust‘ (available to download below and sent in your confirmation pack). On arrival, please report to the Centre and ensure that your group is kept together and off the car park area.
Large coaches may drop off and pick up in the Box Moor Trust Centre car park but we ask that they do not stay in the car park for long periods of time, as the Box Moor Trust Centre is frequently used by other organisations and parking is limited. Coaches may be directed to Bourne End Mills Industrial Estate (off the A41) where there are areas for parking. It is not possible to take coaches up to the Old Barn car park. Minibuses and cars may use the car parks at the Old Barn or Trust Centre.
Where private vehicles are to be used, we ask that we are informed of this beforehand and this is covered by your full Risk Assessment. We cannot take responsibility for any problems prior to the booked session. Please ensure that the group leader is on site before any parents arrive and, once the children have been dropped off, please ask parents to leave to reduce congestion.
What to bring
General information on your visit, including what to bring, will be sent out when your booking is confirmed. This is also available to download (see below).
