This information is for travelling to Yarnfield Park, which
(obviously) we are not doing in 2020. However, we'll leave
it here in case people are considering the 2021 MathsJam.

If
you are unfamiliar with travelling by train in the UK,
click this link to see some advice about train tickets.

Otherwise ...

If travelling by train then you can aim for Stone station (SNE).
There will be a volunteer-run shuttle service to meet each
train, but it is *most*strongly*advised* that you let us
know when you expect to arrive so our shuttle wrangler can
send enough cars.

This
is especially true if you are arriving on Friday, or
if you are arriving Saturday before 10:30, or after 12:30.
You can also call for a taxi from Stone.

Some delegates travelling by train meet up at their departure
station or /en/route/ and start the MathsJam early.

Other
stations to aim for are Stafford (STA) and Stoke-On-Trent (SOT).
Both of these stations have taxi ranks, or you can reserve
a private hire car. In those cases ask to be taken to
Yarnfield Park. It might also be possible to coordinate
with other delegates to share a ride.
