Our official address is this: 27 Wood End, Hebden Bridge, HX7 8HJ, UK. (And always include the postcode).

But if you are searching for us on Google maps, and some other maps and satnav systems, it might be best to use: 27 Keighley Road, HX7 8HJ.

The reason for the current confusion about the location of our base is that most mapping systems have mismanaged the mapping of this area! (To be fair, it’s not an easy area to map!)
