Getting to Sandridge Gate

By Car. In Ronsons Way continue past the entrance to the Waste Recycling Depot.  There should be parking spaces immediately in front of the building. If none there may be spaces sound the back. Ignore the signs threatening heavy parking penalties – there is no checking.

By Bus. Routes 304/305, and 657 – alight at the first stop in St Albans Road and walk back along the pavement towards the King William taking the 8 steps up right to the entrance gate to Sandridge Gate. [The stop opposite Lancaster Road is a similar distance, but involves crossing the ring road.]

Route S8 – alight at stop on Marshalswick Lane opposite Gurney Court Road and walk round into St Albans Road following the pavement on the left as far as the 8 steps up to the entrance gate to Sandridge Gate.

Routes 657 and S8 are best for coinciding with Library opening time.

If you wish to visit, but have difficulty getting to the Library by car or public transport, please contact us by email library@stalbanshistory.org or phoning one of the numbers listed under below.

Access to the SAHAAS Library

The entrance is through Door no. 26 halfway along the building below a protruding blue Sandridge Gate sign.

At present visitors should press the temporary bell-push or call the number posted on the front door (normally 07814 446151 Wednesdays, or 07989 321031 Fridays) for someone to come down and let you in.

All visitors should sign the book to the left of the door on entering and leaving the building.

SAHAAS Library is in Unit 4 on the first floor.

Visitors who would have difficulty with the stairs should contact us in advance and we can bring you up in the goods lift at the back of the building.

We very much look forward to seeing many of you regularly in what is already a much improved research facility and small meeting room.
