Malta Clapham Junction map, road directions and location of the Cart Ruts (Cart Tracks) that can be found located at Malta’s Clapham Junction Cart Ruts site. The site is not that easy to get to as it is tucked away in the countryside.
To find Clapham Junction, Malta’s main Cart Ruts (the most famous Cart Ruts in Malta) you usually approach through Rabat (Mdina) and drive, walk or cycle towards Buskett Gardens (Buskett Woods). This is also the alternative or “back” way to Dingli Cliffs.
The location of these Malta Cart Ruts (Cart Tracks) is known as Clapham Junction but its official Maltese name is Ghar il-Kbir. Signposts normally have both names on them.
