How to find our showroom/shop

The following links will provide you with maps showing:-

  • The route from the A34, the nearest major trunk road (approx 2 miles away
  • A local navigation map to find our location within the Southmead Industrial Park (But see any notes, below, regading road closures)
  • Written directions to assist you in driving to our site from any compass direction. The A4130 almost passes our door and that links directly to the A34 trunk road
  • If you are travelling by train, here are a map and shortcut walking directions from Didcot Parkway station, which lies on the main West country line from Paddington and on the OWW line from the West Midlands via Oxford.

Temporary Road Closure Warning - March 3rd - April 23rd 2015
We have been advised by "National Grid" that as part of the continuing program of electrification of the Great Western main line, there will be a temporary closure of the western end of Hawksworth between 3rd March and 23rd April. There is a simple alternative route as shown on our map (click to view). This involves those coming from the A34 direction to proceed to the next roundabout, then turn right into Collett and second right into Hawksworth - then right into The ToolPost about 200 yards down the road.  Simples!
