Remember, there will be delays so allow plenty of time and read these instructions before you set off.

There are other country routes through B roads that are less busy so have fun planning these. Your main central point is the White Horse Pub NN12 8UW. They have a good website with multimaps on their contacts page : www.thewhitehorsesilverstone.org.uk
