How to get from Harlow to other nearby pools
Whenever possible, Harlow Penguins will organise a coach to take swimmers to other meets and galas. Sometimes this is not practical and it may be necessary for swimmers to make their own way to any of the following pools:
Barnet Copthall Pool (home of Barnet Swimming Club)
(a map is available on their website)
1) Leave Harlow on the M11 Southbound to London
2) Exit M11 at Junction 6 onto the M25 anti-clockwise
3) Leave M25 at Junction 23 onto the A1 Southbound into central London
4) Follow the A1 as it becomes Barnet Way
5) Straight across, 2nd exit at roundabout onto A5109
6) Left, first exit at next roundabout onto A1 (Watford Way)
7) Straight across, 2nd exit at roundabout (still Watford Way)
8) Leave Watford Way (A1) before the major fork, by turning left into Tithe Walk
9) Almost immediately, turn left, northbound up Page Street
Take the first right into Barnet and Copthall Sports Centre.

Blackshots Pool (home of Thurrock Swimming Club)
Blackshots Lane, Grays, Thurrock. RM16 2JU.
