Directions

 

Accessing Markfield Natural Burial Ground is very simple. There are excellent main roads – and the M1 – to within around two miles of the ground.

 

From the North  

We suggest using the M1, and leaving it at Junction 22, the exit for Leicester North. Take the 3rd exit, the one immediately after the access road back onto the M1 to go south. This is Cliffe Lane. Follow this road, go straight over the first roundabout, and take the next left onto Elliott’s Lane. At the T junction, turn right onto Broad Lane, which becomes Markfield Lane. Go past South Charnwood High School on your left. Look for the unrestricted speed limit sign, and slow down as you then need to turn left into the car park.

 

From the South

We suggest using the M1, and leaving it at Junction 22, the exit for Leicester North. Take the 1st  exit. This is Cliffe Lane. Follow this road, go straight over the first roundabout, and take the next left onto Elliott’s Lane. At the T junction, turn right onto Broad Lane, which becomes Markfield Lane. Go past South Charnwood High School on your left. Look for the unrestricted speed limit sign, and slow down as you then need to turn left into the car park.

 

From the East

We suggest using the Leicester outer ring road, and then joining the A50 Coalville Road.  Go to the M1 junction 22, and then take the 2nd  exit, the one immediately after the access road back onto the M1 to go south. This is Cliffe Lane. Follow this road, go straight over the first roundabout, and take the next left onto Elliott’s Lane. At the T junction, turn right onto Broad Lane, which becomes Markfield Lane. Go past South Charnwood High School on your left. Look for the unrestricted speed limit sign, and slow down as you then need to turn left into the car park.

 

From the West, and / or North / South West.

If coming from the far north west, (typically from the M6 for example) we suggest continuing along the A50 to the M1, and then following the directions above, as if you are coming from the North.

From the south west, we suggest leaving the A42 at the Ashby de la Zouch turn off, and following the A511 toward Leicester.  Go past Coalville, still on the A511. When the road becomes a dual carriageway, turn right at the first roundabout (traffic light controlled), onto Stanton Lane. This becomes Cliffe Hill Road. Take the third turn on the right, which is Elliott’s Lane. At the T junction, turn right onto Broad Lane, which becomes Markfield Lane. Go past South Charnwood High School on your left. Look for the unrestricted speed limit sign, and slow down as you then need to turn left into the car park.
