(C) From Egham A30 or From Windsor / Slough A308:
Either go to the M25 junction 13 and follow (A) 2 as above; or head towards the town via The Glanty, the Causeway, over Staines Bridge, Clarence Street. Turn right into Thames Street, which becomes Laleham Road at the railway bridge (where South Street joins from the left). Follow 5b above.
