Cross over the road (Post Office is on the opposite side). Turn right and walk around the corner (Hamptons Estate Agents) turning left into Harestone Valley Road. Follow the 'Continued For All Directions' written below. There is a Taxi Rank outside the station. The cost to travel the 1 mile distance is approx. £3.40. When you leave the Studio at the end of your class, if you wish, we can organise a lift back to the station with one of your fellow students. If you are attending a private lesson you can ask us to organise a pickup and drop off for you.

Our Studio is based in a quiet residential area. Whilst we have permission to teach here, it is important to us that our neighbours and their visitors are able to park near to their properties, So when parking we would really appreciate your consideration and would ask you to follow the guidlines below.
When you arrive, please only park along our hedge line, on our side of the road or on our driveway (see street plan). As a guide, please do not park any further up than the lamp post at the top of our hedgeline and no further down than one car's length past our lowered driveway kerb. Parking anywhere else close by the studio will take up all the parking spaces and will also prevent our neighbours from easily exiting their driveways or entering their garages in particular on the camber and near other road entrances where it is obstructive and dangerous for you to park. The parking is checked at the beginning of each of our classes and we may need to ask you to move your car.
If our hedgeline and driveway have been filled, you will find plenty of road parking, near to the lower entrance of Loxford Road (on the right side as you enter / left side if you are driving back down) there is further parking on Harestone Valley Road, with only a short walk to the Studio (see street plan). You are welcome to bring your vehicle closer to drop off or collect any bulky/heavy items. If you have problems with your mobility please let us know and we will allocate you a driveway place. When you leave, you can exit Loxford Road without turning your car around, simply follow the road up the hill and at the top turn left onto Harestone Valley Road, follow the road down until you get back to the Morrisons Mini Roundabout.
The road is quite narrow so it may be necessary for one wheel to be parked on the pavement to ensure that there is enough room for an emergency vehicle to pass by your car. But please also make sure that there is enough room on the pavement for a double buggy/mobility scooter/wheelchair to pass by freely, we have been warned that there is a £30 legal fine for reported bad parking!
If you have someone dropping you off or collecting you after class, please ask your driver to consider parking in a proper space so that we do not obstruct passing vehicles or cause our neighbours difficulties accessing their driveways.
