The parking will be in Monkton Lane—small single track lane between A404 and the wood.

From M40, leave at J4 and take the minor road (Wycombe Road C100) to Marlow Bottom/Marlow (this is the exit from the J4 roundabout after the A404 southbound).

Follow downhill for about 1 mile, at the pub on the junction take the left hand fork. Follow this lane down the hill. There will be a sudden sharp left turn into Monkton Lane, and the road in front will peter out just beyond this point. Take the sharp left hairpin turn.

Follow the lane all the way to the assembly area, passing under the 404 as you go. TAKE CARE this is a rough single track lane, very limited passing places, and could be quite busy with orienteers and dog walkers.

If approaching from the south leave the A404 at the junction with A4155, and head towards Marlow, at 2nd mini roundabout take RH turn towards Marlow Bottom. Follow this round around the edge of a housing estate, up past the vineyard, continue up hill and as the shubbery at sides of road thins out the pub/junction will be on the RH side. This will be easy to miss if going fast! Turn sharp right in front of pub, and you will be at the fork junction mentioned above.

Parking will be limited and tight. PLEASE SHARE CARS IF POSSIBLE. (It is likely we shall have both BKO and TVOC runners parking here, plus local schools as this event is shared with a Saturday and junior event).

Parking is on the verge in the lane. The Orienteer marshals will probably direct you up to the top of the lane to turn, and then back down to park facing home please take care, it can get busy with a queue waiting to turn.
