to get there
The Meadows Community Centre is a large modern spacious hall, north of
central Cambridge, just off Kings Hedges Road at the junction with Arbury
Road. Get there by cycle,
bus or car. Walking is not recommended. There is a cafe and
supermarket next to the centre.
20 minute ride from the
city centre. Milton Road, then left
onto Arbury Road, right to the end. The full address is The
Meadows Community Centre, 1 St Catharines Road, Cambridge, CB4 3XJCB4
Either take the number 8
towards Cottenham (35 minutes) alighting at Kings Hedges Road, then a
short walk along Kings Hedges Road
Or choose the number 1 (every 10
minutes) towards Arbury. For
simplicity get off at Armitage Way and walk 4 minutes along Kings Hedges
Road. The bus takes 40 minutes from the station and is rather tedious. Best:
take a taxi and someone will give you a lift back.
From the City Centre and from St Ives
Take the Guided Bus B alighting at Orchard
Park West. From Drummer Street,
Cambridge get the 0910. From St Ives catch the 08.58
Free parking. The Meadows is very close to the A14 (Histon and Milton interchanges)
off Kings Hedges Road. 1.5 km distant from Cambridge Regional
Please only walk only if you are a dedicated hiker and it is a fine
day. The Meadows is 45 minutes from the city centre.
My map makes it look closer than it really is!
