Tel: 01476 590845
1. From the North: Drive down the A1 to B6403 (High Dyke) turning. Immediately after coming off the A1, turn right and you will be on a bridge over the A1. Turn left at the T-junction towards Colsterworth, and then almost immediately take the right hand turn onto Woolsthorpe Road (where the 30 MPH speed restriction starts). Stay on this road, go straight over at the crossroads and continue until you reach a T-junction. Turn left towards Buckminster. On arrival at the village turn right on the B676. Within 200 yards you will see the Tollemache Arms on your left hand side. Take the next right turn into an office complex. The practice is directly ahead of you on the left hand side of the complex. Look for the “Running Man” logo on the windows.
2. Alternative Route from the North: Drive down the A1 to Colsterworth. Turn off the A1 at the A151 turn off signposted to Bourne/Corby Glen/Grimsthorpe. You will reach a roundabout head towards Melton Mowbray (B676), Colsterworth, Woolsthorpe. The road goes over the A1 and at the next roundabout take the left turn again towards Melton Mowbray (B676), Colsterworth, Woolsthorpe. You are now on the B676, at the crossroads go straight on towards Stainby. Stay on the B676 to Buckminster. After you enter Buckminster the road bears round to the left and the Tollemache Arms will be on your left hand side. Take the next right turn into an office complex. The practice is directly ahead of you on the left hand side of the complex. Look for the “Running Man” logo on the windows.
Sat-Navs will give you the shortest route which will ask you to turn right over the A1 to Buckminster north of the B6403 (High Dyke) (signposted Buckminster 3.5 miles). This is not the suggested or preferred route by the Practice due to the dangers of crossing over the A1. Should you be concerned by the weather/state of the roads then the second route may be preferable.
Please Note: Certain sat-navs, if you use just the postcode, will take you to the nearby village of Sewstern. Please ring the Practice if you find you are being led away!
