Finding Antrix from the Weald - Staplehurst, Headcorn etc.

For GPS/Sat Nav. users, we are at ME15 9TG, but No. 8 is on the right-hand side of Waldron Drive (some GPS/Internet maps and Google Maps have their marker on the left!). A more precise location for Antrix is 51"14' 43.05N, 0"31' 11.17E which should put you by the kerb right outside! 

From Headcorn & Sutton Valence: Take the road to Maidstone as far as the Plough Pub crossroads at Langley. Take the left turn opposite the pub towards Boughton Monchelsea and Linton (the Heath Road). Follow Heath Road until its junction with the A229 at Linton Crossroads and turn right towards Maidstone and continue as detailed below in From Staplehurst.

 

From Staplehurst & the Weald: Use A229 Maidstone/Chatham road up Linton Hill and across the Linton crossroads, passing the Shell garage site. Stay on the A229 (passing Loose village in the valley) to the top of the hill (Walnut Tree pub to the right, Loose School to the left). Take the next left turn (Lancet Lane) located just before the zebra crossing. Waldron Drive is a left turn off Lancet Lane and Antrix is at No. 8, fourth house on the right after the Valley Drive turn.

Important Notes:

Lancet Lane is a school drop-off/pick-up area, so avoid 8.30-9.15am and 2.45 - 3.40pm during term-time, if possible.


Waldron Drive has no street lighting, so after dark, look for the reflective 8 at the top of the drive

Payment is by cash or cheque with Bank Card and proof of identity. (BACS/Bank Transfer available by arrangement.

The nearest ATMs are at the Sainsburys beside the parade of shops or at the Newsagents at Boughton Parade. There are car parks both behind Sainsburys (entrance via The Farrows, right turn before the Ambulance Station) and at Boughton Shopping Parade (next to Sainsburys) access via Boughton Lane, left turn at traffic lights). From the Linton/Staplehurst direction, Loose Post Office on Loose Green Old Loose Hill (take the first left after coming over the viaduct) offers over-the-counter money withdrawal services.

Appointments can be made Monday - Friday: 10am - 8pm Saturday: 10am - 6pm. Closed Sundays
