The way in
For vehicles, the official way into GMH is through the Main Gates on Bittern Road. Great Moor visitors and staff have right of way through this approach road but are not permitted to park on it as it is not Devon County Council property. Those that do park on the approach road may be wheel clamped. There is some on-road parking either side of the main gates at the top of the approach road but the Honiton Road Park & Ride is intended for those travelling into Exeter by bus and its use by GMH staff and visitors is not permitted.
The South Car Park by the Main Entrance is for visitors, conference members and trainees only. A section is reserved for Devon Record Office visitors. Staff numbered parking spaces in the east and west car parks are allocated to each service on a proportional basis. It is the responsibility of each service to administer the use of its allocated spaces and report any misuse to GMHFM. Entry to GMH car parks is through the main gates off Bittern Road. First left is the west car park. In front of the main entrance is the visitors’ car park. Further on and through the road barriers is the east car park which includes a secure fenced area and 30 additional spaces accessible through the secure fenced area or the Honiton Road Park & Ride. Exit into Moor Lane is left turn only.
Cycle lockers are installed by the north east corner of the building and near the motorcycle area in the visitors car park. Two cycles are available for staff to use for short journeys during working hours. These are maintained by GMHFM and can be booked on 01392 385335 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
