Getting there

Ideally participants will make their own way there by vehicle.  Directions to Lammas are here.  The nearest town Crymych is 4 mile away and Cardigan is around 10 miles away. The closest National Express service stop is St Clears, Black Lion. The closest train station is Whitland. The closest Megabus service stop is Pembroke Dock, Pembroke Dock Ferry Terminal.
If people coming by public transport arrive at a similar time and place, we can arrange to collect them and bring them to Lammas Community.  Jo Venables, our UK co-ordinator, would organise that after registrations come in.

This is a rural venue with basic facilities, not so well set up for people with physical disabilities.
