The A36 and A361 join for a short length of dual carriageway at the Northern end of the Frome bypass (East of Beckington).

At the end of this dual carriageway take the third exit from the roundabout (the A361 signposted as going to Rode and Trowbridge).

After a couple of bends, and a large church on your right hand side, as you leave the village of Rode take the sharp turning left signposted Bradford on Avon (on to the B3109).

Follow this road (3½ - 4 miles) to Bradford on Avon.

On entering the outskirts of Bradford on Avon (down a short hill), go straight on at the mini-roundabout.

You are now on Frome Road, needing to negotiate various traffic-calming obstacles. Continue round a double bend over the canal bridge, and past a sports field on your left.

Go straight on at the next mini-roundabout, and shortly afterwards you will approach another mini-roundabout.

The Old Baptist Chapel is immediately to the right of this roundabout, and parking is available if you turn left into the railway station approach road. The car park is located next to the railway station.

After driving past a Retail Park to your right you reach two mini-roundabouts in quick succession. At both of these go straight on. There are two further mini-roundabouts, at both of which you go straight on. At the next mini-roundabout take the second exit (turn right).

Take the first exit (turn left) at the next mini-roundabout which will take you into Newtown.
