LocationACCESS & FREE PARKING NEXT TO THE GREEN
de Havilland BC, Hatfield, is located by the junction of the south end of Albatross Way and St Albans Road West (A1057), adjacent to the University of Hertfordshire de Havilland Campus. However, there is no vehicle access to the green from St Albans Road West as there are bus barriers on Albatross Way. The Club postcode is AL10 9EU but Satnavs often guide drivers to the bus barriers, which is not helpful. Parking is in the de Havilland Campus car park (which may be charegable), but free parking space will usually be available next to the green. This is reached by entering Albatross Way from the northern end from Mosquito Way in the Hatfield Business Park. See map under the LOCATION tab.
If coming from St Albans on the A1057,
turn left at the first set of lights. For all other routes aim for Junction
3 of the A1(M). Take the A1001 towards
Hatfield. In half mile at the 1st
set of lights (Ramada Comet Hotel on your left (currently closed for redevelopment) turn left and then, at lights
in another 100 yards turn right into the Business Park and Mosquito Way.
Now pass the de Havilland Campus and turn left in Albatross Way at the 2nd roundabout. Follow Albatross Way (past the road signs advising you that the road is for access only) and follow it round to the bus barriers. de Havilland BC is then clearly visible on the right. There is a manual barrier there which the Club will operate to allow access.
Should you come to the green by bus, there are stops 2 minutes walk away in both St Albans Road West and Albatross Way. There are frequent services between Hatfield and St Albans that stop in St Albans Road West (known as the Ellenbrook stop) provided by Arriva, Green Line and Uno. Some local services and others going further afield to Barnet, Hemel Hempstead, Luton, Stevenage and London, for example, also stop in Albatross Way. Most
