Directions

We fly from the Cambridge Gliding Club at Gransden Lodge Airfield

Gransden Lodge Airfield
Longstowe Rd
Little Gransden
Bedfordshire
SG19 3EB, UK

By car

The easiest way to travel is by car. The drive takes around half an hour. We organise regular lifts to the airfield via our transport mailing list https://lists.cam.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/soc-gliding-transport which you can subscribe to once you have joined the club. Drivers may ask you to make a contribution to their fuel costs. If you are driving yourself other members would very much appreciate it if you offered lifts to them via the mailing list.

By bike

Many CUCG members cycle to the airfield, it takes between 0:45 to 1:15 depending on how good your bike is. Most of the route is along flat country roads. There is a cycle path that follows the road from Cambridge to Toft, and from there it is only a few miles to the airfield.

By public transport

There are two bus routes you can take:

  • 18 / 18A Bus (Cambridge - Gamlingay) - Monday to Saturday: The best place to get off is at Bourne, and then walk to the airfield using the same route as the cycle route shown.
  • City 4 / Uni 4 Bus (Cambridge to Cambourne) Monday to Sunday: You will need to walk from Cambourne to Gransden Lodge Airfield, but you may be able to find somebody to give you a lift to Cambourne on the way back.

Path to the airfield

The paths shown below are very rough but are much shorter if your are walking. Unless you are cycling on a road bike they are also an option if you are going to the airfield by bike.
