From villages between Ashford and Maidstone (A20): (Via Maidstone Town)

 

Follow the A20 towards Maidstone. After passing through Bearsted and the Willington Street junction you pass the walls of Mote Park on your left, then shortly after the Grove Green/Maidstone Studios junction you pass Turkey Mill and go under a rail bridge. You have a garage to the left and Haynes garages to the right. Beyond the next traffic lights the road is marked into three lanes and you want the left-hand lane marked for Hastings A229. Follow this to take you over the viaduct (passing Sainsburys on your right) and to join the A229 at the Thirsty Pig Pub intersection. Before the traffic lights to the Thirsty Pig you need to take the left hand fork to follow the A229 up Upper Stone Street and to the Wheatsheaf junction. Following the A229 to the right of the pub,  you pass a fire station, a small Sainsburys store and shopping parade, and the Swan pub. Follow the main road and when you see the zebra crossing, start to slow down, as you will need to take the next right turn for Lancet Lane. Waldron Drive is a left turn off Lancet Lane and Antrix is at No. 8, the fourth house on the right beyond the Valley Drive turn. There is a No. 8 on the small brick pillar at the top of the drive.

Here, turn left around the front of the pub and into Loose Road You pass a fire station, a small Sainsburys store and shopping parade, and the Swan pub. Follow the main road and when you see the zebra crossing, start to slow down, as you will need to take the next right turn for Lancet Lane.
