How to Find Us
From the A1134 (Barnwell Road / Brooks Road) take either the first exit (from Brooks Road) or the third exit (from Barnwell Road) up Coldham's Lane. Continue to the traffic lights at the junction with Cromwell Road (Coldham's Common will be on your right). Straight ahead is a railway bridge. Immediately before the bridge there is a shallow right hand turn onto Coldham's Road. Take that turn into the commercial estate and follow the road round to your right. Just before the railway crossing, turn into Rene Court on the right and you will see us there.
We have limited parking available at the Centre, with more close by. This space is increased at the weekend.
