Note: We realise these directions are complex and involve a fair number of roundabouts and turns, however this is a guide to assist you, but once you are in Maldon, Heybridge is well signposted and we intend to have additional signage. We recommend larger vehicles keep to the main roads as Maldon Town centre has some narrow streets, tight corners and steep hills. (Especially Market Hill and the High street) Exiting.

We have traffic flow management controls in operation during certain times during the event. Please follow the signs back to Maldon. Once you are back in the town the A12 is well signposted for either London or Colchester. There is a Tesco with a fuel station (3.2m canopy height) in Maldon as well as a Morrisons for Soundbound traffic.
