Please note that access to Beechwood Park is directly from Pickford Road and that the School cannot be accessed via Roe End Lane.

Please see the notice from Herts County Council at the bottom of this page regarding the temporary closure of Valley Lane.

From the M1:

Leave the motorway at Junction 9 and join the A5 north towards Dunstable. Travel for 2 miles, then turn left into Markyate village.  In the centre of the village take Pickford Road (look for the sign to Beechwood Park). Continue up the hill on Pickford Road out of the village, travelling for 1½ miles (passing Roe End Lane) and turn right (opposite the end of Valley Lane) into the private drive leading to Beechwood Park School.
