Sat Nav

Use this Post Code for your Sat Nav PL1 3GD, as you may be directed down the wrong road - once on Durnford Street, follow Royal William Road round to the right, do not go straight on. You will see a large cobbled roundabout and the entrance to the Yard is straight in front of you, you have arrived.
