Access to Site:
The access road into Tilgate Recreational Centre and the CARC Clubhouse (Hut18) is via the sliproad at the new traffic lights on the southbound carriageway of the A23 (Brighton Road), just south of Crawley heading towards Brighton, and about 200m from the Broadfield Football Stadium roundabout which is well signposted.

The Clubhouse is accessed via a fairly narrow track for about 200m. Watch out for the new concrete anti-traveller caravan chicane then turn right at the 3rd sleeping policeman!
