Approaching from the A420
The site is about ½ mile from the A420 which links Swindon and Oxford, it is close to the five wind turbines which make a good landmark. Look for the B4508 marked Highworth and Sevenhampton on the west side of the A420 (located between the two turnings to Shrivenham).  Proceed approx ½ mile along the B4508 until you see a wooden gate on your left with a sign for the burial ground.  The office is approximately 400 meters further on down the hill on the left in Westmill farmyard.

Approaching from the A419 from Cirencester
Take the junction sign posted Highworth. When arriving at the traffic lights in Highworth turn right. You will come to a roundabout, take the second exit, the B4000, marked for Shrivenham. After a mile or so go straight over a crossroads and then left at a fork signposted Oxford/Swindon (A420), this is the B4508. Take this left hand fork, proceed along the road through two pinch points (please note, both pinch points are only 6'6" wide!). Westmill Farm will be on your right and our office can be found at the far end of the farmyard in a small red brick building. To get to the burial ground continue uphill past the farm and turn right at the top of the hill. You will see a large sign on the gate. This is the entrance to the burial ground parking area. If you get to the A420 you have gone too far!

Car Park
There is an area large enough for  8 to 10 cars in our car park beside the burial ground. For larger funerals additional parking is available by the wind turbines. 

Disabled access
Anyone who is disabled or cannot walk long distances will have priority in our nearest car park. It is also sometimes possible to park in the burial ground if needed.
