Hemel Hempstead Canoe Club
Nash Mills Recreation Centre
Red Lion Lane
Hemel Hempstead
Herts

Post Code: HP3 9TE (for satnav only - no postbox at Club)

The entrance to the Recreation Centre is just by the railway bridge, directly opposite the Red Lion pub - there's a big Nash Mills Recreation Centre sign. (By the traffic lights under the railway bridge across the A4251 - the old A41).

From M25 J20 take the A4251 through Kings Langley for just over a mile.  Shortly after the Eagle Pub (left hand side) there is a railway bridge crossing the road diagonally, with traffic lights underneath it.  Turn right at these lights into Nash Mills / Red Lion Lane and immediate right along a track beside the railway line into Nash Mills Recreation Centre. If you end up crossing the canal you have gone too far!

From St Albans take the A4147 to Hemel, over M1and go left past second 40 MPH speed camera, into Blackwater Lane. This ends in about a quarter mile and at T junction go right and immediately left into Bunkers Lane. After about a mile, careful it's narrow, is a T junction, go left for 200 yards and right into Red Lion Lane (turns into Nash Mills Lane). Just 300 yards and you're there. Nash Mills Recreation Centre is signed on the left immediately before the traffic lights and the bridge, opposite the Red Lion Pub.

Note: there is no postal delivery to the clubhouse, so please do not try to mail us at the above address because your message won't get through! Please email the webmaster in the fist instance - or just visit on a club night, it might be winter but we still come!
