TAUNTON PICK UP is just off junction 25 of the M5. Coming from the south, exit the M5 at junction 25 and take the first left in to the Blackbrook Business Park. From the North, exit the M5 in the left hand lane and take the third exit. You will immediately see a petrol station with a Costcutter minimart to your right – this is the pick-up point for our coach. There is on-street car parking around the business park. Most members park on the street adjacent to the Holiday Inn (turn right after the petrol station). There is usually ample spaces on weekends but allow more time for mid-week fixtures as the area is busier.
The Westcountry Blues do have an agreement with the Holiday Inn management at Taunton for car parking. All ‘Car Parkers’ need to register at the reception first. The charge is £5 with the risk of not conforming to this ruling will see your car being clamped. For Satnav purposes, the postcode of the Holiday Inn is TA1 2PX.
BRISTOL PICK UP The Bristol pick up is just off Junction 16 of the M5. No matter which way you approach J16 take the A38 North and from the Junction approx 500m on your right is the Almondsbury Interchange Hotel. Please use the hotel car park which is free of charge. Due to COVID restrictions we wait OUTSIDE the Hotel reception but please remember we are not guests so please keep noise to a minimum. The coach pick up point is from a bus stop that is approx 150m to the North of the hotel car park indicated by the red pin. This requires us to cross the road so please be careful as it is a busy road. For Satnav purposes, the postcode of the Almondsbury Interchange Hotel is BS32 4AA.
