Mill Road, Bishop's Stortford, Essex, CM22 6BJ, England

Travel Notes

Pledgdon Barn, Mill Road, Henham, Essex CM22 6BJ The barn’s not in Henham village (despite its postal address). It’s on the B1051 leading out of Elsenham towards Thaxted, after the turning to Henham. For Sat Nav the Barn’s postcode is: CM22 6BJ . ONE ROUTE | From M11 come off at Jnc 8 onto (new) A120 and follow signs towards Stansted Airport Terminal. At the last roundabout where Terminal is visible (air traffic control tower on left) + short term car parks are ahead, turn right (for Elsenham/Takeley) but at this mini roundabout, turn left. Follow this winding country road past Three Horseshoes pub (don’t turn)…past De Salis Monsoon Hotel on the right…round a sharp right hand bend and on to a T Junction opposite The Crown pub, Elsenham. Turn right. Go past a left turning to Henham (don’t take it)…and Pledgdon Barn is soon on your left. Car park is in front of the barn. A welcome awaits you.
