Next Meet

Hi everyone.

Brief details about Tuesday nights meeting at Chesterton Mill. I suggest we meet up at 7:30 latest considering the sunset time. There is only the mill itself at this location but still plenty to photograph. If you want a photographer free view, its probably best to arrive early - it is a popular location.

The weather is forecast 18 degrees, sun and clouds but possibly with a stiff 14mph breeze.

Sunset is 8:52pm.

Location is 52.231N 1.491W

Closest postcode is CV33 9LB

Map Ref SP 347 593

Parking is on Windmill Hill Lane.

Directions - Follow the Fosse Way (B4455) either from Brinklow or pick up the Fosse Way by turning right at Princethorpe on the Oxford Road (A423). This is a staggered junction.

Continue down the Fosse Way, over the next staggered cross roads at Hunningham Hill and straight over at the next roundabout. You go under a railway bridge - then turn left into Chesterton Road at the next cross roads, second left after the railway bridge.

Up the hill and turn right into Windmill Hill Lane. 

There is parking both side of the road. 

Follow path up to the mill (approx 200m), but, please remember, this is working farmland. You may see others wandering into the fields (which may now have been harvested). Please stick to the path if there are crops in the field (Not everyone does in pursuit of photo’s and this angers the farmer considerably - I have seen him in action…..).

This is a great landscape location, so, if you have a tripod, I suggest bringing it along.
