Stanford Dingley Village Hall is located on a very small country lane on which there is large agricultural traffic passing by frequently. This gives very limited parking on the lane; realistically 2 cars only.
Village events: Most people should walk. Less mobile visitors can be dropped off but there are a maximum of two parking spaces on the lane outside the hall.
Parking at The Old Boot Inn (30 meters away) : By prior arrangement with the Landlord, Andre Claassen (0118 974 5191). Charges may be applicable.
Larger scale: off road parking for bigger events in paddocks/fields close to the hall subject to weather and arrangement at the time of booking the hall.
The village has two pubs/restaurants:
The Bull Inn (very good dining – 200 metres) and The Old Boot (about 50 metres from the Hall and a proper pub). Both pubs in the village will support events in the hall either with onsite catering or offering lunch at their pubs.
How to find us: We are 30 meters from the Old Boot Inn in Stanford Dingley. See our location below on Google maps.
