From Hungerford Lock:
You are at the bottom of the High Street - continue up the street, under railway bridge and turn almost immediately left into Park Street signed to the station.
Continue along road, over cattle grid on to Hungerford Common (the canal is down to your left). Stay on main road.
Take next left past Pill Box towards Lower Denford.
You have arrived.

From Hungerford, return to A4 and head towards Newbury. Turn right off Af at Dunford Manor signed Dunford and Dunmill

PARKING - You can park on the little triangle of grass by the pill box and walk over railway bridge to canal bridge. Or park in the car park (height restriction entrance) between the railway bridge and the canal. NB This was chaos on Waterside B but fine on DW itself.

This is quite a long portage for the crews and they have to cross the road - although our DW instructions said we, as support crew, would have to help get them across the road, we were pleased to find there were official stewards manning the road crossings.  However, this might not be the case every year so be prepared to man the crossing as well as feed and water your crew!
