Ian works from a picturesque studio in a former lock keeper's cottage on the bank of the River Cam, just north of Cambridge. It's a little off the beaten track, but worth the journey. It's near the M11/A14 and the closest rail station is Cambridge North. It's also easy to find when walking or cycling along the river towpath.
Road: Exit A14 at junction 31 and head for the village of Milton, keeping Tesco on your left as you go across the mini roundabout • Drive through the village, past the Lion and Lamb on your left and the White horse on your right then take the next road on the right – Fen Rd • Drive down Fen Rd, keeping the Jolly Brewers on your left for some way, going a cross a level crossing until you reach the river. • You're nearly there! Carefully turn right and drive along the riverside path until you reach Baitsbite lock, which you'll see in the distance. You can park in one of the reserved spaces • Or if you don't want to drive down the river path, park at the end of Fen Road and walk towards the lock, where you'll find the studio.
By bicycle from the city: Cycle north along the river, up the tow path for about 5Km (from Midsummer common). You'll reach the lock on the left
