From Colchester take the B1025 to West Mersea, pass over the Strood and proceed to the right past the East mersea turning. You will find a lay-by on the left (where you can park) when completed you will be able to proceed a further 150 metres where the entrance to the Car Park is to be located. WARNING
Members may park in the Lay-by but should be aware that when the Strood floods at high tide so does the Lay-by.
Cars can park in the lay-bye until the new car park has been created, This car Park will be kept locked using the Society Padlock.
