Location
Back to Maths Dept, from (and including) Wed 21 August! See detailed directions
Mathematics Department
Wellington College
Duke’s Ride
Crowthorne
Berkshire
RG45 7PU


Use the main entrance through the gates into Byron Drive from Duke’s Ride (Wellington College is signposted). We have had reports that Sat Navs sometimes attempt to use other entrances, but usually only the Duke’s Ride one is open in the evening.
There is now a security barrier in operation just inside the gates. If attended, just let the security officer know that you are playing at the chess club, and you will be let through.

Detailed Directions
Enter the college through the usual entrance on Duke’s Ride and continue past the security guard (tell him you’re here for chess). Drive as far as the three parallel roads to the right. Take the third of these to the end, turn left and follow the road as it curves right and left again. Please drive slowly as there may be school children around. Pass the Old Gym on your right and turn next left, just before the Modern Languages building (recognisable by the flags of the world façade). There is parking behind the Languages building, and further parking spaces just beyond the building behind the Languages building. We meet in the block over the road from the Languages building; take the footpath to the square with ornamental trees; turn left, up the steps and enter the maths block through the last entrance door. We meet in the end room.

Please do not park on the road, for fire safety reasons. This is a residential school, so please walk directly from your car to the playing room and avoid walking through the grounds unnecessarily.
