Stay in the left lane and turn left at the roundabout (under the fly-over) signposted for Preston. At the lights in Preston turn left. Pass round the church and take the next right, posted Sproatley.

About 3/4 mile outside the village an RAF bombing range appears on your right. Slow down here and look out for the P J L Trailers sign on your right (there are trailers by the roadside). Enter the yard. The gate should be open (on left) go though it turn right, turn left. The chamber is housed in the
