Whilst works are still being carried out, the office is not disabled friendly accessible, but there is space within the library where we can meet you.
If you are coming into the office, please enter the shop, and bear left into the library. Follow through to the rear door, and exit into the secure garden area. Exit via the open gate, and the cabin is directly in front of you. I can always meet you in the library, should you wish to be accompanied to the office.
