How to find us - New road systems in our area

For those who have visited us in the past please be assured we have not moved!  This area does look very different and road systems have recently changed  lot and will continue to do so.  Recent changes include the opening in 2015 of Junction 28 of the A12 and in April 2016 the re-routing of the A134 (from Boxted/Nayland Road roundabout to Great Horkesley).  This latter change means that we are now in a cul-de-sac.  We are located from the A134 via a short NEW road called 'GLORIANA ROAD'.  At the end of this road turn left and we are on the right.


There are many ways to approach us.  If you have any problems please phone us on 01206 844008.  SAT NAV IS CO4 5HA. (Chapman's Farm) but this doesn't always help as navigation maps are not regularly up dated!   We hope the following notes will help.


If using Junction 28 (D) of the A12 you will travel on a road called 'Via Urbis Romanae' until you come to major traffic lights where this road meets the Northern Approach Road (A134) turn right towards Sudbury.  At the roundabout continue straight over on A134 turning right soon after into 'Gloriana Road'.   


If using Junction 27 (C) of the A12 take the slip road down to the A133 roundabout take second exit onto Colchester By-Pass (Avenue of Remembrance). At the next roundabout turn left on to the A134 towards Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds.  There is a further roundabout where you keep straight on.  Take care under the North Station Railway Bridge that you keep on the A134 now the Northern Approach Road.  Travel straight across traffic lights where Northern Approach Road crosses Mill Road and keep to left hand lane and turn left at next traffic lights. (A134 Sudbury)  At the roundabout continue on A134 soon after turn right onto 'Gloriana Road. 


If using Junction 29 (E) of the A12 Join the A1232 towards Colchester.  Turn right at first traffic lights into Severalls Lane (Industrial Estate) .  Travel along to roundabout opposite Colchester Business Park.  Go straight across this and the next roundabout towards Langham, Boxted and Gt Horkesley.  When you come to a T junction turning left towards Colchester, known as Boxted Straight Road. Travel to roundabout and take 3rd exit onto A134  (going North) and take first right into 'Gloriana Road'. 

Travelling from Colchester area or along the Colchester By Pass (Avenue of Remembrance/St Andrews Avenue).  You need the Roundabout A134 Sudbury which takes you North via Colchester North Railway Station and then follow the notes set out under Junction (C). 

Travelling via the B1508 Bures/West Bergholt Road Go north onto the A134 at Colchester North Station Roundabout and follow notes set out under Junction (C).

Travelling from Sudbury/Bury St Edmunds direction using the A134 Go through Gt Horkesley and follow A134 and soon after traffic lights turn left into 'Gloriana Road'.

DO NOT USE THE MILE END ROAD FROM THE STATION AS THIS NO THROUGH ROAD CULMINATES IN A BUS LANE WITH TRAFFIC CAMERAS.
