Directions to Axminster Photography Group


Cloakham Lawns Sports Centre, Axminster, EX13 5HW


On entering Axminster town centre from the Honiton direction, pass by The Minster on the right and then turn left just before the George Hotel which is the A358 signed for Chard; follow this road past the hospital on the LHS and drop down to a mini roundabout. Take the left turn (A358) and as you climb the short but fairly steep incline you will see a new housing development on the LHS. Where you see the Bovis flags ( Brewer Avenue) turn left and after about 30 yards turn right through the newly occupied houses and at the end turn left down the slope. When you see the main sports building turn immediately left, along the unmade “road” for 70 yards and you will see the Bowls Club building in front of you.

Should you be travelling from the Chard direction, after crossing the river bridge (traffic light controlled) at Weycroft, climb the short sharp hill on entering the outskirts of the town. In few hundred yards you’ll pass over a pedestrian crossing, turn right just after this into Cloakham Drive, the start of the new(ish) Bovis development. Follow this down a long slope and when nearing the bottom the sports centre will come into view, turn sharp left before this, on the unmade “road” and the Outdoor Bowls Club is in front of you about 70 yards, which is where we meet.

For anyone coming into Axminster from the Lyme Regis direction, take the first turn for Axminster after passing the Hunters Lodge pub, on dropping down to the town, turn right on the A358 towards Chard and at the bottom of that road turn right at the mini roundabout on the A358, climb the short but steep hill and turn left down Brewer Avenue and follow the instruction in bold type in paragraph 1.


We look forward to welcoming you at one of our meetings.
