From the A12 from London exit at Hatfield Peverel. Follow signs to Maldon, then Goldhanger and Tolleshunt D’Arcy on the B1026. Chigborough Road is a small left hand turn as you leave Heybridge after Heybridge Basin (if you get to the Mill Beach pub on your right you've gone too far). Go down Chigborough Road and take the first gateway on the left, signposted campsite only, or, alternately, continue along Chigborough Road a little further and you will see the main courtyard of Chigborough Farm on your left hand side. Take the train to either Witham or Hatfield Peverel stations and get a taxi to the campsite (the taxi costs around £10).
