Because of the road closures, temporary arrangements have been made with the bus companies involved. Two temporary bus-stops are being set up for the day: these will be at Scotts Quarry industrial estate (which may be reached via footpath from Station Road - see map), and near Castle Grove on the east side of the town.
398 Tiverton - Bampton (Dartline buses)
(Scotts Quarry Industrial Estate bus-stop)
25B Taunton - Dulverton (First Somerset & Avon Ltd)
(Castle Grove/Morebath Road bus-stop)

Parking for coaches is limited - it is not possible for coaches to use the Luttrell Farm or Motte car park as the access roads are very narrow. Those intending to bring coach parties MUST BOOK IN ADVANCE - contact Celia Hicks 01398 332101
Coaches coming to the Fair must arrive via the A398, turning off at the Exeter Inn. They must then turn to park just at the outskirts of the town at Scotts Business Park EX16 9DN, the first opportunity to turn left on this road. After this point there is no opportunity for coaches to park or turn, and they would cause major traffic disruption! DOWNLOAD HERE a map to show coach parking.
Passengers can take the safe footpath through the houses down into the middle of the town. See map.
