St Martin’s School
Getting to and from St Martin’s School
These routes and maps are suggestions of how you could stop taking the car and swap to cycling, walking, or scooting to school. They don’t show every possible route and you could have fun finding a way that works for you. If you know a safe way that gets you there even quicker, that’s great! Take that route instead.
Hanging Hill Lane
Heavy traffic zone
The highlighted heavy traffic zone on the map shows the area that will have the heaviest traffic at school time. By using alternate routes and a mix of walking and cycling, you can avoid sitting in traffic and being late for school.
There are two pedestrian entrances to the school, both on Hanging Hill Lane, about 150 metres from one another. There are railings outside the front of the school, to help support road safety. You will find some footpath short-cuts in Hutton, allowing quicker access on foot, so it’s worth searching them out online.
Although there are no cycle paths immediately around the school, Hanging Hill Lane does have long sight lines, helping anyone riding to or from the school on the road feel confident. The Brentwood cycle map covers other areas of Hutton, Shenfield and Brentwood.
St Martin’s has some bus services passing the front of the school. It’s less than a mile walk to Shenfield Station and high street, meaning it’s well connected with Brentwood, Ingatestone and Chelmsford, as well as some of the villages nearby.
St Martin’s is about a 15 minute walk from Shenfield station, which is a major hub for trains in Essex. It has quick, direct lines to Brentwood, Chelmsford, Billericay and parts of north-east London. There are footpaths and pavements nearly all the way, and they’re on fairly quiet residential roads. Greater Anglia offer discounts on train travel for students at some schools.
