Routes to Northleigh Village Hall EX24 6BJ using fairly major roads. There are many other shorter routes but using smaller and often not well signposted country roads.
The Sat Nav coordinates for the hall are N50:45:31 W3:08:30. It is recommended to use these. Northleigh is quite a 'spread out' village - just because you've arrived doesn't mean you are close to the hall.
From Seaton the most direct route is about 6.4 miles via Southleigh or 9 miles via Colyton. Via Farway Common Road (as shown) is 13 miles.
If you don't know the area, use a SatNav or plan a route using Google maps.
In icy conditions try to avoid Colyton because it is a frost hollow. Local roads may be dangerous.
|Follow the green dots!
From High Street HONITON, take the road past the rail station (this is called New Road).
Continue passing the Golf Club on your left. IGNORE the first right turning to Northleigh - this would lead you down the red dots. Take the second turning right, down a steep hill, the hall is at the bottom of the hill on your left. The right turning you need is 2.1 miles from the Golf Club entrance.
From Sidmouth choose either the scenic route or the slightly shorter direct route.
