St Mary's, Kingsclere (Postcode RG20 5PJ)
Directions from Newbury: follow the A339 out of Newbury towards Basingstoke.  After passing the Star Inn (appoximately 7 miles after leaving Newbury) you will reach a roundabout where you should turn right - towards the village centre.  Follow the road for approximately 1/2 a mile when you will see St Mary's on the right hand side.  There is no parking outside the church itself, but
being in the centre of the village there is plenty of public car parking spaces in the vicinity.

 

From Basingstoke: follow the A339 out of Basingstoke towards Newbury.  After approximately 7 miles you will pass Sandford Springs golf club on your right hand side, and almost immediately, a left turn to Kingsclere.  Take this turning and follow Basingstoke Road all the way to the bottom by the fire station.  At this t-junction turn left and follow the road into the village where you will see the church in front of you.  There is no parking outside the church itself, but being in the centre of the village there is plenty of public car parking spaces in the vicinity.

St Paul's Ashford Hill (Postcode RG19 8AZ)
Directions from Newbury: follow the A339 towards Basingstoke for approximately 4 miles - you will pass Greenham Common (the old air-base) on the left hand side, and then cross from Berkshire into Hampshire.  Follow the road up the hill, and then when you start to come down the other side, you will need to turn left into Ashford Hill Road.  Follow this road past the village shop, then on for approximately 2.5 miles until you see the church on your right hand side.  If you go past the school (on your left) you have gone too far!  There is plenty of parking outside St Paul's, and when we expect large numbers we often open the adjoining field to accomodate even more cars.

From Basingstoke: follow the A339 out of Basingstoke towards Newbury.  After approximately 7 miles you will pass Sandford Springs golf club on your right hand side - then after about 500 metres you will see a cross roads.  Turn right up the hill towards Ashford Hill and Aldermaston.  Follow this road for about 2.5miles and turn left into "Ashford Hill Road".  You will see the school on the right hand side, after which you will see the turning for the church on the left.  There is plenty of parking outside St Paul's, and when we expect large numbers we often open the adjoining field to accomodate even more cars.

St Peters, Headley - RG19 8LB
Directions from Newbury: follow the A339 towards Basingstoke for approximately 4 miles - you will pass Greenham Common (the old air-base) on the left hand side, and then cross from Berkshire into Hampshire.  Follow the road up the hill, and then down again.  At the bottom of the hill you will see a turning on the right into the church and village hall.  At busy times it is often difficult to cross the oncoming traffic here, so it may be advisable to carry on up to the curry house/garage, pull in left and then turn around to make it easier.  There are plenty of car parking spaces around the church and village hall at St Peter's
