Bike Shed at George Porter

A number of you were wondering where you can leave your bikes whilst at the George Porter Workshops.  We have an excellent, safe bike shed here, that is overlooked all day, well lit and offers both covered and uncovered storage.

If you are on your bike, please leave it here as bikes fastened in any other location will be removed.

How to find the bike shed

Step 1...

Come through the gate and past the gate house, turn right around the back of the temporary buildings. You will see a small sign on the wall.

Step 2...

Walk all of the way to the bottom of the building to where the car parking begins 

Step 3...

Turn right again and you will see a footpath leading around the back of the building

Step 4...

Turn right once more and you will see the bike shed in front of you.

Laser Cutting

Bookings are being taken for laser cutting, the extraction is (fingers crossed) fully operational.

Please don't book any more than 2 hours per week in total on the lasers, to allow access for all. If you are working on a group project, then book using different members emails to avoid cancellation

Unless you are booking 30 minutes only, please do not make bookings part way through the hour as this can create lots of unusable small sessions for others.
