V&H Traffic Alert!

I just wanted to give you a bit of a warning about traffic on the 1st May - the V&H is coinciding with the Badminton Horse Trials which is just a few miles from Chipping Sodbury - this will probably mean an increase in traffic in the morning so you may want to try an alternative route. Instead of using Junction 18 on the M4 you can go off at Junction 14 (for Thornbury) of the M5 if you are coming from a northerly direction or Junction 16 (the Almondsbury interchange for Thornbury/Almondsbury) of the M5 if you are coming from the South or West. This will avoid Junction 18 (the Bath junction) where most of the Badminton traffic will be coming off of the motorway.
I'm sure if you use a sat-nav you can find the alternate route or you can use Google maps - the postcode for the hall is BS37 6AD, but if you need any more directions please ask!

I feel just like a radio traffic announcer!


  1. Thank you for the tip off! I am coming along with my friend Victoria (Florence and Mary)
    Soo looking forward to it! The Christmas V&H was fabulous!

  2. I am sure our faithful friends will make it by hook or by crook, even if they have to arrive by horse!
