Access to Blackthorpe Barn from A14

Blackthorpe Barn is situated just off Junction 45 of the A14 three miles east of Bury St Edmunds, in the village of Rougham. Most events are clearly signed by the AA, from the main A14 road. In addition the Blackthorpe Barn’s own black and white signs direct visitors from local roads.
