The following information about getting to the start and where to leave your car may be useful:

Whilst there are no facilities for sleeping overnight in the Town Hall, Wadebridge on Friday 24 May, such facilities are available at Teignmouth Community School, particularly for those wishing to take the early morning coach from the School to Wadebridge on Saturday 25 May. ****** This facility is now full and no further requests for overnight parking at the school can be accepted (posted 26 March 2013)

The walk will finish at:

Teignmouth Community School, Exeter Road, Teignmouth. Devon TQ14 9HZ

Coaches will be available to take those entrants who have booked a seat, from Teignmouth Community School to Wadebridge Town Hall as detailed below.  Seats will not be available on the day unless pre-booked.

Access to the Teignmouth Community School premises and its parking facilities will be available from 6pm on Friday 24 May, once all pupils have left and Cornwall & Devon LDWA Group are in situ.

Parking, overnight sleeping and washing facilities will then be available on site.

However access to the premises will not be available between the hours of midnight on Friday 24 May, and at 4am on Saturday 25 May to ensure that those already sleeping on site will not be disturbed .  Following the end of the Event, the School premises must be vacated by 12.30pm on Monday 27 May.

Those wishing to stay overnight at Teignmouth before the start must advise the organisers beforehand, so that parking may be allocated. Space is limited and only those actually sleeping at Teignmouth can be accommodated on the school site.
