DIRECTIONS to THE OLD VICARAGE MORETON PINKNEY
Moreton Pinkney is best approached from the M40 junction 11, if you are coming from London, the South or West; or from the M1 junction 16 and then the A45 to the A5 at Weedon, if you are coming from the North East or East.
How to get there from the M40 (8 Miles)
Leave the M40 at junction 11 (Banbury) taking the dual carriageway towards Brackley and Northampton from the exit roundabout. After ¾ mile, at the roundabout turn sharp left (initially towards Northampton but turning left after 2 miles) and follow the brown British Tourist signs towards Canons Ashby to Moreton Pinkney bypassing Thorpe Mandeville, Sulgrave and Culworth. Just after entering Moreton Pinkney pass a garage on the left and then, going up a short hill a green opens up in front of you. Fork right across the green on the tarmac track under lime trees to the wrought iron gates of The Old Vicarage by the church car park.
How to get there from the A5 (7 Miles) which runs parallel to the M1 (Exit 16 and take the A45 Northampton to Daventry road to the A5 at Weedon)
About 3 miles along the A5 South of Weedon X roads, in a bit of a dip, there is a road off to the West (right if you are travelling South, left if North) signed Canons Ashby on a brown British Tourist sign. Take it and follow this road through the villages of Litchborough, Maidford, Adstone, and Canons Ashby to Moreton Pinkney. Follow the road through the village leaving the arched entrance to the Manor on your left and turn sharp left immediately after you have passed the arch, across the green to the wrought iron gates of The Old Vicarage by the church car park.
How to get there from Silverstone
Leave the Race circuit onto the road running up the West side, turning Right (North) onto it. At the main road (A43) T junct turn Left towards Brackley. After about 300 yards turn Right onto minor road towards Abthorpe. After 1 mile at T junct turn Left for Abthorpe. (If traffic controls do not allow you to turn left on A43, turn right and after 500 yards turn Left for Abthorpe in Silverstone village).
Pass a wood on your Left, and about 1 mile beyond the end of the wood, at cross roads, turn Left for Abthorpe. Continue through Abthorpe to the next village: Wappenham. In Wappenham you travel up a slight hill to a village green where you come to a turning Right to Weedon Lois. Take it
Stick to the main road through Weedon Lois and through the next village: Weston
Half a mile beyond Weston take the very minor turning Right to Moreton Pinkney. After just over a mile, at the T junct in Moreton Pinkney turn Left. Pass the arched gates to the manor on your Left and after 30 yards turn Left across the green towards the church. The wrought iron gates to The Old Vicarage are on your Left.
