• Walk all the way to the end passing the club on the right (large double black gates with notices on).

• Follow the road round to the right, go into the car park and enter the sailing club site through the gate at the bottom of the car park. This gate is often locked so please call in advance so we can let you in.

Directions by car

Approaching along the A406 westbound from Staples Corner, look for the Neasden turnoff. There is a green traffic sign (shortly followed by a brown one) showing two turnoffs close together. Take the second one, signposted Kingsbury, which goes round to the left to join the A4088 where it crosses underneath the North Circular. 

Follow the A4088 along a few hundred yards up a slight hill, through 2 sets of traffic lights. When you've passed McDonald’s and a self-storage depot, turn right at the traffic lights. The road is a cul-de-sac called Birchen Grove, and there are signs to Greenhouse Nursery.

Go to the end, don’t go through the gates into the Nursery, but follow the road round to the right, through the width restriction. Turn into the car park on the right, between the barrier – the gap is wider than it looks! The club is accessed through the locked gate at the bottom. You’ll see the Welsh Harp Sailing Club building situated at the dam end of the site, overlooking the water.

Approaching eastbound on the A406 from the Hanger Lane. After you've passed IKEA and gone through a couple of bends, take the slip road down onto the A4088, signposted Wembley/Kingsbury. Then follow the directions above.
