The Pastoral Centre is on Newport Road, which at this location is the B4487. It is at the rear of St Illtyd's school, accessed through the main school gates. You can only turn into this gateway when travelling westbound (into Cardiff city centre).
By road from London, Newport and all East/North East directions.
Travel westbound on the M4 to Junction 28. Take the A48 westbound towards Cardiff. At the roundabout for Old St Mellons take the 2nd exit, which is Newport Road - do NOT follow the A48 further, which then becomes a motorway. *** Go straight ahead at the next roundabout, and straight ahead at the junction (possibly with trafiic lights) for Tyr Winch Road. Eventually you will come to a junction with traffic joining from your right, controlled by traffic lights. Be prepared to take a left turn immediately after passing the traffic lights - the entrance is in a bay concealed until you come close. The gates on the right lead into the school grounds; be prepared to drive half-way around the school building, anticlockwise, before finding the pastoral centre.
By road from Bridgend and West Wales.
Travel eastbound on the M4 to Junction 29, the Cardiff Gate turning. Take the second exit off the roundabout (A4232: the Pentwyn link road), straight on at the small roundabout and first exit off the next roundabout on to the A48 Eastern Avenue towards Newport. Where the A48 becomes the motorway A48(M), take the left hand lane for non-motorway traffic. When you come to the roundabout take the third exit, into Cardiff, and pick up the directions above at ***.
By road from Central Cardiff.
From central Cardiff take the Newport Road eastbound. When you come the end of the industrial zone at Ipswich Road, you have a choice. Either take the first exit off the roundabout, take the A48 (Eastern Avenue) eastbound and take the directions above; or else continue along Newport Road for about 1.5 miles until you come to the traffic light system entrance for St Illtyd's School. Approaching travelling eastbound (towards Newport) you will see the gate on your right, but blocked from you by the central reservation which is part of the traffic light system. Approach the traffic lights in the left-hand lane, and take the left filter. Immediately take a sharp right so that you are queueing to turn back on to Newport Road; by turning right you can now take the left turn into the school gates.
