Unit B, Greenhill House
26 Greenhill Crescent
Watford Business Park
Watford, WD18 8JA

LOCATION. The business parks are in West Watford (Hertfordshire) exactly half way between the centre of Watford and the centre of Rickmansworth, near Watford hospital and football ground.


IF YOU HAVE VISITED US BEFORE: as you get to our old address slow down, Greenhill House is on the right immediately after Citroen (Peugeot).  IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST VISIT: go to WD18 8JA. From turning left into WBP (Watford Business Park) Greenhill House is 0.3 mile on your right. Landmarks (all on your right): 

  • Faraday Close (new industrial area)
  • Pennings
  • Junction of Caxton Way
  • Citroen  (Peugeot) - slow down!

Greenhill House is immediately after Citroen.



We do prefer that you check the items, we want you to be confident they are suitable for your needs.

  • Take the first entrance to GREENHILL HOUSE (marked “WAY IN”)
  • Keep going all the way round the building to the very last shutter on the left, just before the exit. Park in front of the shutter unless we have told you otherwise (scroll down to see photos). 
  • Then, by foot, turn left out the gate to the front of the building, our door is 12 paces to your left.


We prefer that you check the items (we want you to be confident they are suitable for your needs) but sometimes this is not necessary, e.g. consumables you have bought before.


  • You have made an appointment so that we have the items ready for you
  • You know what you want and don’t need to check the items, ask questions or discuss the weather
  • You have the exact cash ready
  • You stay outside the door and keep an eye on your car


  • As you turn into GREENHILL HOUSE turn immediately left along the service road at the front of the building.
  • Unit B is the second door (at the end of the building), stop (or park) exactly outside the door. 
  • If you can see us, tap on the door or wave; if you can't see anyone, ring the bell. Your order will be waiting for you just inside the doorway
  • Do not come in! Watch your car, you will have to move it if anyone needs to get by or if you are in someone's parking space.

This is our map (the last half mile), X marks the spot. You will approach traveling south to the little 'Ascot Road' roundabout (right at this roundabout then left at the next roundabout into Greenhill Crescent, Watford Business Park):

This is what you see as you approach Greenhill House:

Cash preferred. Or pay by bank transfer (this is usually instant but, officially, it can take up to two hours). No cards, sorry.


Items bought from the office may not be returned so if you don't know exactly what you are buying, please allow time to check they are suitable for your needs.


If you're not using a paper map or traveling by public transport or by foot or by bicycle, then please ignore the remainder of this page. 

On a map, find London. Now move your eye North West and find Watford. If you can see Harrow you're nearly there, if you're looking at St Albans, Hemel Hempstead or Amersham you've overshot. Have you found Watford? Now find Croxley - this is on the A412, west of Watford, halfway between the centre of Watford and the centre of Rickmansworth. That's the location of the business parks.

If you have to stop and ask...

It is the double roundabout you are aiming for, especially the smaller of the two with the word CROXLEY around on it. 

Landmarks on map:

  • bridge over the canal
  • new housing development / tower block (Fire Station on pre-2013 maps)
  • double roundabout.
  • new industrial area, Faraday Close on map

Landmarks to ask for if you know think you are very close:

  • Harvester pub-restaurant (on the next roundabout towards Croxley)
  • Brewers Fayre / The Rising Sun / Premier Inn (all the same building) is by the short dual carriageway that leads into the business parks
  • Big Yellow Self Storage (next to The Rising Sun and the low bridge)
  • Tower blocks of new housing estate (2023)
  • New industrial estate at Faraday Close (2024)
  • Royal Mail Delivery office (ask a postman).


SUMMARY: from the M25 we are a 15min drive from each of Junction 17, 18, 19 or 20; we are a 15mn drive from M1 Junction 5 (at the junction of the A41).

DETAIL: Watford is inside the M25...but only just. The M25 loops tightly round three sides of Watford so please look at the map - if you approach from the South use Junction 17 or 18, if you approach from the North West or North use Junction 19 or 20, if you approach from the East use Junction 21a. We are approximately 4.5 miles from each of these junctions. Similarly, the A41 loops round two sides of Watford, look at the map or you could add 15mns to the journey. From the M1 leave at either Junction 5 or 6. From the A1(M) I suggest you leave at J3 onto A414 and follow the signs to the M1 (you will join M1 at J6 and leave it at J5) - but there are various other routes.

BY ROAD, FOR LOCALS (who don't need a map)

Do not confuse Watford Business Park with the industrial estates off Tolpits Lane. By car you cannot reach Watford Business Park from Tolpits Lane (though there is a footpath).

From Watford. Watford Business Park (adjoining Croxley Business Park) is best approached from the Rickmansworth Road, the double roundabout is the first roundabout after the underpass.

From Bushey via Bushey Arches or from Northwood via the NATO ('Warrior') base. Turn West into Deacons Hill / Wiggenhall Road, ahead at the lights, over the bridge at the lights, follow left into Vicarage Road, over the pedestrian lights, right at the traffic lights, road bends left, road bends right, ahead at mini roundabout, left into the main road at lights. You should now be in Whippendell Road. At the roundabout follow the signs to the Business Parks onto the dual carriageway.

From Rickmansworth via Watford Road. Aim for the roundabout after Croxley station.

From St Albans take the North Orbital then A412 / St Albans Road all the way. Alternatively take A411 / Hempstead Rd and join A412 / Rickmansworth Road at the Town Hall roundabout.

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT (incl. walking/cycling from the stations)


There are two stations and they are in different parts of town: closest is Watford Underground (from Baker Street, 43mns) the other station is Watford Junction (from Euston, fastest train is 16mns, slowest is 1hr 10mns). Both stations are listed on the TFL (Transport for London) route-planner

Watford Underground (Metropolitan Line). Where is it? - see train map or street map.  Want to know when you will arrive? See live train-arrivals information

Watford Junction (London Overground and National Rail).  Where is it? - see train map or street map. Also, live train departures


Watford Underground (we say, "Watford Met." because it's on the Metropolitan Line). From Baker Street 43mns (also through-trains from the City at peak times). Providing you get a Watford train you can't get lost, Watford is the end of the line.

Then to get to Quicktest:

  • Cab (5mns): there's a cab office, turn right out the exit, it's by the side of the station.
  • Bus, W30 (10mns): bus stop by the station (on the same side as the station), it goes to our door every half hour in peak times.
  • Walking (20mns): scroll down for directions.

Watford Junction. Northbound from Euston: the fastest train by National Rail  takes 16mns, or there's a slow tray by London Overground (1hr 10mns). Just take the train with 2 or 3 stops rather than the train with 18 stops. Southbound: it's the line from Glasgow, Crewe and Birmingham.

Then to get to Quicktest:

  • Cab (10mns): turn right out of the exit.
  • Bus: turn left out of the exit (you'll see it, big bus station), the W30 (see timetable) goes to Watford Underground Station then to the Business Parks (and stops outside our block) every half hour in peak times. Failing the W30, it's best to go from the town centre: walk south down Clarendon Road (the road outside the station, 15mns) then get any bus from Stop D to the double roundabout at the entrance to the Business Parks, then it's a 15mn walk - all a bit slow and painful but the bus fare is £2 compared with £8.00 for a cab.  
  • Walking: fastest route 50mns, prettiest route 60mns: scroll down for directions.

BY FOOT and BICYCLE (detail)

From Watford Underground the walk takes me 20mns; my colleague says it takes him 18mns; if you walk very slowly it could take 25mns. By bicycle: 6mns.

Turn left out of the station (Cassiobury Park Avenue)
first left into Swiss Avenue
and at the junction follow the pavement to the left (Gade Avenue).

At the end*, turn right onto the main road, the Rickmansworth Road and cross at the pedestrian lights (turning right onto the pavement) towards the roundabout. 
* or you can cut the corner off by cutting across the green, just aim for the pedestrian lights.

You are half way there.

Follow the pavement to the left until you see a second roundabout, marked CROXLEY - aim for the low bridge and tower block.

Cross the road (Whippendell Road), pass under the low bridge and past the new housing estate (Cortlands Cassiobury, due for completion later this year, 2023, 1,213 flats with 200 parking spaces).

Fascinating facts: to your right was to be the new Ascot Road (Cassiobridge) Station, originally due to open in 2017, then postponed until 2020, then the entire project was abandoned after the cost rose from £285 million to £358 million. Useful information: if you are calling to collect a purchase and have forgotten to bring cash, there is a cashpoint at Morrisons. 

At the road junction you will see that straight ahead is a dead end (for traffic) and to your right is a roundabout.

By foot: aim for the roundabout (road sign reads BUSINESS PARKS)
and at the second roundabout follow the pavement round to the left (road signs reads WATFORD BUSINESS PARK).

By bicycle: instead of turning right towards the roundabout, continue ahead, alongside the edge of Morrisons. At the end of the road turn sharp right, through the posts (by the side of the Renault garaget) to the end of the road (200 yards) and turn left into the main road (Greenhill Crescent).

If you get this far and haven't seen a Renault garage and are not on an industrial estate, don't keep going, turn back to the junction of paths and try again.

You are now in Greenhill Crescent. Greenhill House if 1/3 mile on your right, immediately after Citroën.  

BY FOOT (from Watford Junction Station)

This is the way I go (47mns):
Turn left out of the station and stay on Clarendon Road (follow it to the right, looks like 'right fork' to non-drivers)
Over the small main road (St Johns Road); over the large main road (Beechen Grove)
and at the end turn left into High Street (pedestrianised).

First right into Market Street
Continue ahead at the crossroads
At the end turn right into Cassio Road
then immediately left, by Ikky's, into Victoria Passage.

Ahead at crossroads (school on right)
At the end follow the road right (no choice)
Left into Pretoria Road.
At the very end turn left into Chester Road.
Ahead at the crossroads (still Chester Road)
Ahead at the crossroads (becomes Belgrave Road)
At the end turn right into the main road.

At the mini roundabout turn left into Tolpits Lane.
At the pedestrian lights turn right into Croxley View.
At the sharp left bend (by No.166) turn right onto the footpath signed Watford Business Park.
At the junction of paths fork left towards the road (after 50 yards Renault will be on your left, if not, you've gone the wrong way) and at the end turn left into Greenhill Crescent. Greenhill House if 1/3 mile on your right, immediately after Citroën. 

Here is a simpler (but longer, 25mns) route along the main road (A412 / St Albans Road - Rickmansworth Road):

Outside the station cross the road and turn right. At the lights at the BIG main road turn left (St Albans Road). You can't go straight ahead at the roundabout, so either follow the pavement to the left, cross at the lights and walk back, or you can cut the corner off like this: when you cross at the pedestrian light, continue ahead into Albert Road South (map); continue ahead (do not follow the road to the left) to the very end and turn right into The High Street. You will be by the ponds. No ponds? You are very close, don't just keep walking, ask someone! Past the ponds, keep left, turn left into the main road. The main road has now changed name to Rickmansworth Road. Over the cross roads (crossing Hagden Lane); turn left into Cassiobridge Road; at the end turn right (Budgens opposite) and cross the road; just before the roundabout turn left, past the big yellow building, under the low railway bridge (Ascot Road) and past the tower block. Ahead at the junction (dead end, by the side of Morrisons) and at the very end turn right towards the buildings of the industrial estate; turn left into Greenhill Crescent (Renault on the corner); Greenhill House if 1/3 mile on your right, immediately after Citroën. 

A variation (57mns) is to walk through the park, it's very pretty, if you like walking it's worth the extra 5mns:

Outside the station cross the road and turn right. At the lights at the BIG main road (road name opposite reads St Albans Road) cross the road and turn left.
After 5mns you will find that the underpass is in the way, so keep right parallel to the main road, cross The Avenue at the subway, as you leave the subway continue ahead to library (look up to your left), walk round the library to its main entrance and cross the road, continue to the main road, turn right (you're now back on the main road).

After 3mns the park will be on your right, just past the Colosseum between Peace Drive and Cassiobury Park Avenue. There are two paths into the park, take the left fork; turn left by the house with the picnic benches (Cha Cha cafe); ahead and turn right onto the road; Watford Metropolitan Line Station will be on your left, follow directions, above, from Watford Met. Line Station (for directions click here).

BY BICYLE (from both stations)

There's a cycle-route planner which is 'quite good' - though, as a local, I have a better route! The cycle-route-planner's step-by-step directions are good but the multiple arrows on the map are confusing. 

For Watford Junction Station 17mns by 'my' cycle route or 15mns along the main road.

From Watford Met. about 7mns.
