How to find us

Public Transport: There is a good regular service from Plymouth to Tavistock by both Citybus and Firstbus which will drop you at Yelverton shops. Go across the road onto the Airfield and head for the flags!

By car:-

N.B. Access to Knightstone Tea Rooms will remain open but parking will be restricted on the open Moor nearby to disabled and exhibitor traffic only. We are providing a marked off area for free public car parking. The road on the airfield between Knightstone and the Harrowbeer Interest Group Dispersal Bay will be CLOSED to all traffic during the two days of the event. 

From Plymouth: drive North from Plymouth and head for the Moors following signs for Tavistock and/or Yelverton.

On approaching Yelverton, you will see the '1940s Event' signs on the left, on either side of the road that takes you to Buckland Monachorum. This is also where you turn in to get to the famous 'Rock'.

You can either park (for free) in the dispersal bays down past the Rock and then walk across to our event, or follow the yellow signs which will take you to the (free) car park at Axtown.

From Okehampton/Tavistock direction: Follow the A386 from Tavistock towards Plymouth. Either proceed to the Rock junction (as above) but those with local knowledge may wish to turn off after Yelverton roundabout and follow our signs to the (free) car park at Axtown.
