What's the plan for getting in on site, turn up and ask or phone in advance, don't want to arrive to be turned away because there's too many bods on site already.

Cheers

Taken from the Bruntingthorpe Website, this has been posted on 2 other aviation forums so I expect it could be a busy day and with their 'limited viewing' I would get there early!

From Cheshire you'll need to head down the M6, you can avoid the M6 toll but I think it would be easier just to take it, continue east on the M6 until Rugby and then branch off north east taking the A426 to Lutterworth. In Lutterworth branch right onto Gilmorton Rd which later becomes Lutterworth Road. In Gilmorton turn right and then left into Mill Lane which later becomes Bruntingthorpe Road. At the T-Junction turn right into Bath Lane and in about 200yds on your right is the entrance to Bruntingthorpe.

Here is a map I did last time for when XR808 landed;
