Time & Place


The Workshop is open as follows:

Day Open Close
Monday 10.00am 2:00pm
Tuesday 10.00am 2:00pm
Wednesday 10.00am 2:00pm
Thursday Closed  
Friday 10.00am 2:00pm

Our closing time depends on the number of members on-site at closing time and the prior commitments of the Duty Manger.

There is two hour parking in Hilcot Road and the roads around the workshop. We have permission to use the Tesco car park for parking (up to 3hrs).  This is accessed via Portman Road.

Reading Buses are very frequent along the Oxford Road.  Routes 15, 16 and 17 all stop in front of the Battle Library.

    This shed sounds great, but it is a shame it is not open in the evenings or at weekends. It would be good to come along, but just not possible for me during normal working hours.

      The aim of the charity is to combate social isolation in older men so we fixed our hours to when we felt we would do most good. Parking would also be a problem as the streets around here are a nightmare to find a space between 6.00pm and 7:00 am. We have good relationship with our neighbours and would not want to jeopardise that. If we move this may be a option.

    Hi guys
    I can’t seem to find the address of the workshop is it possible for you to send it to me

  • I have just suffered a stroke but still fortunately have quite a lot of movement. I’m only 55 but would really like to be able to try my hand at woodwork. Is it okay for me to come along & join you?

  • Hi
    Are you still open; there are no updates on your pages.
    Thanks ..hope you are!

  • Unfortunately being a woman in her early 50s and working through the week, this isn’t for me. But can you recommend any wood workshops available in Berkshire area? Yours very hopefully.

      In general Men’s Sheds are only open during the working week. There a couple of linked sheds in Basingstoke who are open to lady members and open late afternoon and early evening. See: https://basingstokeshed.org.uk

      Where are you based?
