Users of SatNav or route planning websites, please note:
Entering the BRE postcode, WD25 9XX into some satellite navigation or other online route planner sites may try to take you to the rear of our site (via Mount Pleasant Lane and Bucknalls DRIVE) from where there is no access for visitors or deliveries. Instead, enter the postcode as WD25 9NH. This will take you to Bucknalls LANE, Watford. BRE is towards the end of this residential street, just after crossing a bridge over the M1 motorway
