Driving directions to The Control Tower NR22 6AZ

The Control Tower is situated on B1105 aka ‘The Dry Road’ so called because it was built as a direct route between Fakenham and Wells-next-the-Sea it doesn’t traverse any villages and therefore has no pubs. We are about 5 miles north of Fakenham and 3 miles south of Wells-next-the-Sea.

 

From the South - A1065

At the first Fakenham roundabout take the 2nd exit onto A148 toward Holt & Cromer. After 1/3 of a mile turn left onto B1105 signposted to Walsingham and Wells. Take the first left to stay on B1105. Continue on the B1105 for 4 miles. You will see pink cottages on your left (on a cross roads) carry on for another ½ a mile.  Look out for the North Creake Airfield Business Park on the left (look out for Blue Storage sign). Take the first left after this which is an airfield concrete track opposite WWII airfield huts. The Control Tower is the first house on the left. Please park on the shingle drive by the front door.

 

From the North – A149

At Wells-next-the-Sea take the B1105 which will either be a left turn (if travelling from the east - Stiffkey, Blakeney etc) or right (if travelling from the west – Brancaster/Holkham etc) on Two Furlong Hill towards Fakenham. Continue for 3 miles along the B1105. Once you see the airfield hanger on the left and then the hangers and silos on the right look out for a concrete track on the right opposite WWII airfield huts. The Control Tower is the first house on the left. Please park on the shingle drive by the front door.
