How to find us.
Look Out For The Semaphore Signals & Footballer Plates you cannot miss them.
During the week you can park on either side of the main road which is a Dual Carriage Way, this is a BUS Lane but not during the 9.30-1630 NO RESTRICTION and many side streets opposite the shop but please don’t park on the Double Yellow Lines or after 4.30pm on the Single Yellow Lines as this is enforced with Traffic Wardens!
If you are approaching the shop from the Manor Top, after passing the CLOSED Fire Station; STOP before the single yellow lines change to double, if you don’t and pass the Shop turn around and park on the opposite side as you will have a longer walk back to us.
