How to get to EEH


There is plenty of parking at the space for cars, the car park is free, but can be locked outside of park sociable hours of 9am to 4:30pm. We have a combination lock for the gate should you get locked in, the code is available on discord using the !eeh gatecode command. You are encouraged if you intend to leave later than 10pm to park outside the gates, they are very, very squeaky. Please respect our neighbours!


We have no shower facilities, but we do have a cycle rack. There are very few cycle paths in our part of Essex, but several back roads and a bridle way from Hockley Station. Greater Anglia runs regular services (20 minutes off peak, 10 minutes on peak, 30 minutes at weekends).


The nearest train station is Hockley and is served by Greater Anglia (sometimes even regularly). The station is within walking distance but there is a hill between the space and the station. Last train times:

  • HOC to LST Mon-Sat: 23:12, Sun: 23:06
  • HOC to SOV Mon-Sat: 01:41, Sun: 01:40


Current recommendations are:

  • Eddies Cars - [email protected] - - 01702 593000 (Hockley)
  • Bestax - 01268 777300 (Rayleigh)

Not quite so local:

  • Journey's Private Hire - 07701 076658 - (Basildon)

These also serve hockley but have had fairly negative reviews we'd like to correct if service is improving!

  • Alpine (01702) 531531 which are based on the london bound station side and
  • Andrews (01702) 200200 (allegedly improving!)
