Coming from Wickford along the A132, left turn shortly after the speed camera (on opposite side of road but remember it on the way home - 30mph limit)
Coming from the direction of the A130 along the A132, right turn into Church End Lane.
The Hall is about 500 yards along Church End Lane on the left. Very visible - you can't miss it.

Not good at estimating sizes! Medium size hall with high ceiling and has capacity for about 150. Behind the stage are two rooms, one is a very well equiped kitchen with a counter. The other is a room where they store tables and chairs but when they are out in the hall, there is a serving counter in the kitchen where hot food can be served up and guests can then filter through to the other room where a buffet can be laid out (that's if it is a serve-yourself, buffet type arrangement).

Good access. You can reverse up to fire doors at the side and unload straight into the hall. Fire doors are next to the stage. There is a car park to the side of the hall.

Caretaker Issues:
Caretaker was very nice. Had access earlier in the day to set up but this facility is not available if the hall is booked for another event earlier in the day. All music must end by 11pm and the hall vacated by 11.45pm but as long as you are busy packing away, she will wait until you are finished.

Setting Up:
Set up is on a stage. Stairs either side at the back but you can lift gear straight onto the stage from the front.

Sound Limiter:
No sound limiter but it is in a residential area.

Power Connection:
There are two single thirteen amp plug sockets, one either side of the front corners of the stage, hidden behind a curtain under a brass cover.

Bar Location:
No bar

Tables Available For Use:
There are large and small tables available for use.

Fuel Stations:
Not sure about any local.

Mobile Phone Signal:
All networks are pretty well covered. Orange was fine.

Additional Remarks:
It is a very nice well maintained hall with very good acoustics.
