Location

St. Mark's Church is an imposing red-brick Victorian Gothic building, standing on the corner of Reading and Alexandra Roads, in the southern part of the town of Farnborough, in Hampshire.

The area is locally known as "North Camp", reflecting as that does the historic (and real) link with the northern section of the army garrison town of Aldershot.

TO FIND THE CHURCH:

By Rail: trains on the Reading - Gatwick line stop at North Camp.  From there it is a quick taxi ride, or a 15/20-minute walk.  Please use the 'Contact Us' form on this website to request directions.  If travelling to Farnborough Main station (the London - Basingstoke line), a taxi ride is recommended as the walk is at least 25+ minutes.

By Bus: the Aldershot - Camberley (No. 1 Service) route stops right outside the Church, at the Reading Road junction.

By Car: from Farnborough town centre, take the A325 towards Aldershot, turning left at the Technical College, and immediately right into Alexandra Road.  The Church is located at the next roundabout junction.
From the A331 Blackwater Valley By-pass, which links the M3 (Junction 4) with the A31 (Guildford/Farnham), take the turning marked "Farnborough A3011" and follow this road through North Camp (military base on your left) to the next roundabout, where the third exit is Alexandra Road.  The Church is, once again, located at the next roundabout.
There is no designated car-park for the Church, but surrounding residential roads have plenty of on-street parking available.

St. Mark's Church Hall can be found in Guildford Road East at its junction with Alexandra Road, which is - effectively - opposite the Church on the other side of the roundabout.  As a landmark, look for the War Memorial on the adjacent pavement.

TO FIND THE CHURCH HALL:

Rail and Bus information is as above.

By Car: drive as if approaching the Church.  When you reach the Alexandra Road roundabout mentioned above you will see that Guildford Road East is blocked by a "No Entry" sign.  So, turn into Reading Road, keeping the church building on your right-hand-side as you go past it.  Shortly, turn left into Oxford Road, then at its end, another left into Church Circle, and immediately another left into Guildford Road East.  The Hall is at the far end, on the right-hand-side.  To exit back onto Alexandra Road (the main road), you can re-join the roundabout with ease as the "No Entry" does not apply from this direction.  Sounds more complicated than it is!

NOTE: when using an internet map service or satellite navigation system, please note that neither the Church nor the Hall have a postcode allocated to them.  However, if you enter GU14 6ND for the Church or GU14 6TU for the Hall, you will be led to the correct area ... we have borrowed numbers from neighbouring houses!
