  1. A good signpost for the Tennis Club also is the speed camera that is just outside it. Be careful turning into the club as there is an entrance and an exit. I made the mistake of going in by the exit! Fortunately the barrier didn't crash down onto me. The entrance is almost exactly opposite the food factory. (I think that's Moy Park, used to be Padley's)
