Long Marston is situated at the end of a freight only branch line from Honeybourne. The MoD base hosts a vast amount of locos and rolling stock for secure storage, but due to its location and nature, the locos and stock are quite difficult to view.

From the M40, leave at junction 15, taking the A46 Stratford Road towards Stratford upon Avon. Continue following the A46, passing over 2 islands. At the 3rd roundabout, turn right into Alcester Road. After approximately 1 mile, turn left into an unamed road and follow this road to the T-Junction. Turn left into Binton Hill, passing through the village of Binton. Continue along to the end of the road until you reach another T-Junction. Turn right onto the A439 Evesham Road and then immediately, 1st left into Binton Road, passing over the river Avon.

Continue through the village of Welford on Avon and, upon passing through Long Marston, turn left into Station Road. A road leading into a small industrial estate immediately to your right, will give your partial views of the yard and the stored locos. Due the amount of stock, some of the shunters may not be visible.
