How to find Althea Library
As you approach Padstow on the A389, avoid the first turning to 'town and docks' (and one-way system). Continue past the large car park on the right. Take the next turning right onto Church Street. When you pass the 'Church Street' sign, go slowly as it is easy to miss our entrance. Look for 64 Church Street, PL28 8BG - the driveway is next to it - WE ARE AT THE TOP OF THE DRIVE.
