We also suggest that www.streetmap.co.uk is an excellent tool!  (Post codes for the schools hereunder)

Ardingly RH17 6SQ  Go to Ardingly village on Turners Hill/Haywards Heath road and take right hand fork (travelling from north) signposted the College.  The main entrance to the College is about half a mile on the right.  The pitches are fairly widely situated so once there ask where our match is!

Benenden TN17 4AA   You can either go through Tunbridge Wells or cut through with aid of map to A21.  You need to get on to the A262 (signposted Ashford). Go through Goudhurst to Sissinghurst. In Sissinghurst village turn right (signposted Iden Green and Benenden). Continue for approximately 2½ miles and the School entrance is on the right (opposite left turning to Benenden Trust Hospital and Biddenden).

Brambletye RH19 5JY (East Grinstead) From Forest Row go back up the A22 towards East Grinstead and as you get into the 40 mph zone you will see the exit on the left.  The entrance is another 500m or so further on.  From E.G. go out of the town and turn right 100m before the left turn to Ashurst Wood.

Brighton College Junior School,
Eastern Road, Brighton BN2 0AL

Copthorne
RH10 3HR (Nr Crawley) Go up A22 to Felbridge and turn left onto A264 towards Gatwick.  At the large roundabout (Duke's Head pub on left) turn right and take 2nd turn on left (narrow lane) and the school is situated where the lane turns sharp right.  (If coming from London take the M23 and take the East Grinstead exit.  The Duke's Head roundabout is the second one you come to - excluding the exit - where you take the first left.  The lane is then second left as before.)

Cottesmore RH11 9AU (near Crawley) Join the M23 via Felbridge and head south.  Take 2nd(?) exit and follow signs to Pease Pottage and Services.  Go past the services to mini roundabout where you turn right.  Go past a pub (the Black Swan) on your right and a driving range (also on right) and Cottesmore School's drive is on your right a few hundred yards past this.  A more direct, but more wiggly, is to go to Turners Hill, Worth and at small roundabout in Handcross turn right and travel parallel to M23 till you get to roundabout to Pease Pottage (left) then as above.

Cranleigh GU6 8QQ (nr Guildford) Depending on which way you approach it, Cranleigh is between Godalming and Horsham on the B2128.  The school is on Horseshoe Lane which is at the western end of the village (turn left if coming from the west and right if from the east).  The senior school is then on your left with the Prep School on the right.

Cumnor House RH17 7HT (Danehill) Take A22 to Wych Cross (about 3 miles from Forest Row); go straight over traffic lights (if green!!).  Opposite the Roebuck Hotel turn right towards Lewes.  Danehill is another 2-ish miles from this junction and the entrance to Cumnor House is just before the village on a left hand bend.

Dorset House RH20 1PB (south of Pulborough) Several routes to get to the A29 and then to village of Bury. School on Church Lane off the A29

Dulwich Prep TN17 3NP (Cranbrook)  A21 towards Hastings, then A262 Ashford Road through Goudhurst.  At roundabout junction with A229 go straight on into Sissinghurst.  Turn right opposite The Bull pub and right again at first crossroads.  The school is c ½ mile down that road on left.

Eastbourne college BN21 4JX  Take A22 from Forest Row.  Through 2 sets of traffic lights at Polegate cross roads.  Take second main exit at Willingdon Roundabout (ie fork right) and go through 3 sets of traffic lights to a small roundabout (station is on the left).  Turn right and immediately left.  At junction go straight over and the College is 500 yards along on the left.  You SHOULD be directed to pitches from there.  (For the Astroturf, follow instructions to St Andrew’s and the pitches are on Summerdown Road just before Paradise Drive and golf course)

East Grinstead Hockey Club RH19 4JU - at the large roundabout as you get to EG, go straight over and into the town.  Turn left at the 2nd  mini roundabout, go over the next mini roundabout and follow that road round and down the hill to the next roundabout where you go straight on.  Up the hill past small private road (Coombe Hill Road) and about 20m on turn left (Saint Hill Road).  EGHC is about 200m along there on the right.

Fonthill Lodge RH19 4LY – as for EG Hockey Club (above) and Fonthill Lodge is down Coombe Hill Road on the right.

Great Walstead RH16 2QL (near Lindfield) Get to Lindfield (between Turners Hill and Haywards Heath).  Just north of the village pond turn left.  After three-quarters of a mile fork left and Great Walstead is half a mile-ish on the right.  Alternatively go from Ashdown to Cumnor House (as above) and continue into Danehill village.  Turn right below the church into Freshfield Lane.  After about a mile turn right at small cross roads (probably signposted Lindfield, Walstead, Haywards Heath?).  Follow this road for a couple of miles past golf course on right and school is on the left about half a mile after this.

Handcross Park RH17 6HF Take the B2110 from East Grinstead through Turners Hill to Handcross village.  On approaching the village turn right at the roundabout (signed Pease Pottage) and the main school entrance is first on the right. (If going from London go down the M23 and on to the A23.  Take the exit for Handcross (B2110) and the entrance is about a mile further on, on the left.)

Hawthorns RH1 4QJ  Take the A23 through East Grinstead and join the A25 at Godstone.  Turn left there towards Redhill/Reigate;  go to Bletchingly and just past the Red Lion pub turn right into Little Common Lane which becomes Pendell Road.  The school is on your right.

Hazelwood RH8 0QU (near Oxted) Go up A22 and join the A25 east to Oxted, Westerham, Sevenoaks.  Go under viaduct in Oxted and at next set of traffic lights take right-hand lane into Wolf's Row.  Go past St Michael's School and 100m on take right-hand fork into Wolf's Hill.  Hazelwood is 100m on left.  (From London take the Godstone exit from the M25 and continue as above.)

Hilden Grange TN10 3BX (Tonbridge) Go through Tonbridge past Tonbridge School on your left.  Take the left hand fork in the road at the traffic lights outside the school and then bear right almost immediately into Dry Hill Road.  The school is where Dry Hill Road meets Dry Hill Park Road.  (From London take the Tonbridge North exit from the A21 and then go towards Tonbridge for about 3 miles.  Go past the Oast Theatre on your right and the Langley Hotel on your left and Dry Hill Park Road is just past the Hotel signposted to Maidstone. The school is about 50m up this road on the left.)

Holmewood House TN3 0EB (Tunbridge Wells) - From Ashdown turn left out of the drive and follow the B2110 through Hartfield, Withyham and Groombridge to Langton Green.  Go past the Hare pub and a Texaco garage and a row of shops (all on left).  As you leave the shops the road bends and Barrow Lane is on your right.  This is a particularly nasty narrow lane so take care as you cross!  Go to bottom of lane and it's signed.  A safer option is to carry on for another 100m and Holmewood Ridge is on the right, go in there and then left into Hither Chantlers and Holmewood is on right 50m on.

Hurstpierpoint BN6 9JS - Off A273 between Burgess Hill (south of Haywards Heath) and Brighton.  Going south, turn right at Hassocks traffic lights, go into Hurstpierpoint village where you will see a sign to the College, turn right and weave down narrow lane till you reach the school.

Kent College, Pembury TN2 4AX  – through Tunbridge Wells and out to Pembury.  Straight over two roundabouts and at traffic lights go straight over (left to Pembury Hospital, right to Pembury village).  Approx 1 mile take first exit left signposted Kent College.  Go past waterworks and school is at end of road (dead end).

Ludgrove RG40 3AB (Wokingham)  Take M3 to Junction 3.  Follow A322 to Bracknell.  After a couple of miles turn left at roundabout taking B3430, go over first roundabout and turn right at the second.  After 800m turn left (? signposted Wokingham).  After a mile you pass the White Horse pub and Ludgrove's drive is the first turning on the left past the pub.  If you go over the level crossing you've gone too far!  Alternatively go down the M4 to Junction 10 then follow signs to the centre of Wokingham.  In the centre fork left onto the A321 (Sandhurst/Camberley) and after half a mile you pass the Two Poplars pub on the left.  Take the next left (Luckley Road).  At the end of that road take the right fork into Ludgrove drive.

Marlborough House TN18 4PY (Hawkhurst) Go to Tunbridge Wells and then Pembury where you join the A21 towards Hastings (if coming from London go straight down the A21!).  Go to the Flimwell traffic lights where you turn left onto the A268.  As you go into Hawkhurst Marlborough House is on the right hand side of the road almost opposite the Golf Club and just past the 40 m.p.h. signs.

Newlands BN25 4NP (Seaford) Go to Seaford.  From the town centre head towards Eastbourne on the A259.  Go over cross roads with B2108 (Downs Leisure Centre is just before this on the left and a garage is just after on the right!).  The senior school is immediately on your left and the prep school is about 100m past this on the left.

Roedean BN2 5RQ To Brighton sea front and turn left (east) along A259.  Roedean is c 1 mile along this road on the left.  You can’t miss the imposing Victorian buildings and playing fields but I think you can’t access from the other direction!
