How To Find Us
We know that our club can be quite hard to find. The purpose of this page is to make sure that you do not get lost on your way to our club. If you still have any doubts please contact us.
Our address is Sandy Lane, Colemans Hatch, TN7 4ER but beware, some SatNav systems interpret this postal code as the far end of Sandy Lane and you may drive past the club if you follow it. Sandy Lane is a narrow track leading from the main east-west road across Ashdown Forest known as Colemans Hatch Road (but also known as The Ridge Road).
This picture shows an aerial View of CHBC as you approach it down Sandy Lane (marked in blue). Our green is on the right and the cricket ground is on the left as you approach the club.
The Ordnance Survey map coordinates for this picture are :
Approaching from Forest Row, via Hartfield Road B2110.
Follow the Hartfield Road out of Forest Row until you come to Colemans Hatch Church on the brow of the hill. Turn right into Shepherds Gate opposite the church.
After about 400 metres come to a double junction, meeting first Coach Road to Hartfield on the left (you turn right) and then keep right as you enter Coleman’s Hatch Road ( see fig 1).
Don’t turn left past the Hatch Inn but keep right. (Wych Cross, West Hoathly, TRG Area).
Pass South Hartfield house on your left and after about 0.2 miles you come to Sandy Lane. (See fig 2).
This picture (fig 2) shows the entrance to Sandy Lane as seen when travelling southwest on Colemans Hatch Road (The Ridge Road). The club is on the right, just after the first house on the left called ‘Spinningdale’.
Beware this is the third ‘track’ after passing South Hartfield house.
Approaching from Withyham and Hartfield along the B2100 to Forest Row.
Go through Upper Hartfield and just after the speed limit change to 50MPH turn left into Coach Road to Colemans Hatch then follow the directions and picture as above into Colemans Hatch Road.
Approaching from Wych Cross on the A22
Continue along Colemans Hatch Road for about 2 miles until you see on your left the entrance to a property as in this picture. If you slow down and look on the right you will now see the picture above with the 9 name board which is your entrance to Sandy Lane.
Once you enter Sandy Lane beware of the vicious speed bumps! The club is on your right just past the first house (on the left). You may notice the cricket ground on the left which is opposite the bowls club.
