digital tectonics will be held in the University Hall, marked 'J' on the campus map. The Hall is best approached by going down the external stairs off the Parade, opposite the Library, 'A'. There is disabled access by a lift off the Parade level or by a ramp off the Service Road under the Parade.
Map to get to the campus
Buses 18 and 418 depart from the city centre Bus Station (opposite Bath Spa Railway Station) approximately every 10 minutes. Return fare is £1.05. Bus stops are shown with red dots on the map. The nearset bus stop to the city centre is just north of Westgate Street (not south as shown on the map). The bus then crosses Pultney Bridge, goes along Great Pultney Street and up Bathwick Hill. See also other new Bus Services for 2001-2002.
We recommend that for digital tectonics you enter the University by the Quarry Road Entrence and park in Car Park 'H'. The eastern car parks are used for a Saturday 'Park and Ride' and people coming to participate in sports. Please display this notice in your car when you park.
The University campus is situated on Claverton Down, to the east of Bath. The A4 and A36 roads run through the city; the M4 motorway is approximately 10 miles away.
If approaching from the M4, leave the motorway at junction 18 and follow the A46 south 8 miles to the Bath exit from the new dual carriageway. Turning right here brings you on to the A4 westbound to Bath.
