Parking arrangements have now been received from Eton College. The first choice is the Laundry Car Park (off South Meadow Lane). This is marked with a 'P' in a box on this map, which also shows, by a dashed line, the walking route away from the car park. If the Laundry Car Park is full then use the side of Slough Road either side of Willowbrook lane (SL4 6HL). This road does not have any yellow lines so is fine for parking. It is about a 10 min walk from there to the location of the solving at School Hall.
Eton advise that the best driving route is to come off the M4 at J6 (A332) or J7 (via Dorney and Eton Wick) and follow the satnav to postcode SL4 6DW.
Solvers will be aware of the current extreme weather conditions that are affecting areas close to Eton. There is currently no indication that there will be a problem with travel to Eton or with the venue itself. The minor road from Datchet is closed, which hardly anyone would use. All the main roads are open. The Paddington to Reading rail line is very restricted. However Windsor (the closest rail link) has two railway stations on different lines.
Having said that, however, things can always change and change quickly. The BCPS committee will be keeping an eye on the situation and we will post notice here of any amendment to or cancellation of the event. If that happens it will probably be a few days before the final, when weather forecasts are more reliable. Watch this space!
