Finding Us
Most satnavs, given our postcode, will find Forest Lane with no issues. For those without a satnav, first make your way to the Kingsley Green hospital site on Harper Lane (between Shenley and Radlett). Forest Lane has two entrances from Lime Way (since it is effectively a large loop); take the first entrance on your right, proceed over the speed bumps past the bungalows, continuing until you see a large red-brick two-storey building on your left (Forest House Annexe, of which the Education Centre occupies most of the ground floor). Pull into the adjacent car park. The entrance to the Education Centre is via the steel gate (with the intercom) at the right-most corner of the building.
