Help for Cluster customers

I need to have a meeting, how does that work?

We don't offer private meeting room facilities.

If you have a resident's desk you can have somebody at your desk with you provided it doesn't impact other people in the studio.

If you have a membership for the shared work area, you are welcome to have someone sit with you for a couple of hours. If you need more people, or frequent/longer meetings we suggest using somewhere like The Lavender Bakehouse opposite or Jolly Nice Cafe.

Finding Cluster and getting in

Enter the Hallidays Mill complex at the main street entrance opposite The Lavender Bakehouse. Continue around the back of the buildings to the 5-storey mill building which has a large white entrance on the MSC Joinery side by the car park.

When entering your access code on the door, remember to press # at the end!


We have four spaces notionally allocated to us but no spaces are marked, and typically there is plenty of space in the rear car park. If there is no space in the rear car park you can use the large lay-by just up the main road, or the on-street parking at the entrance to Chalford village.

Please do not park anywhere else within the mill complex.

What to do about lunch?

We suggest you bring lunch and snacks with you. We have a microwave, toaster and fridges for you to use.

If you want something ready-made, The Lavender Bakehouse across the road has table service as well as takeaways. Chalford Community Shop is one minutes' walk up the canal tow path and has a range of fruit, vegetables and snacks.

Using the printer

You are welcome to use the Brother mono laser printer for free. When adding it make sure you install the driver for it (or "CUPS" driver on Mac) and do not use the AirPrint driver.

The printer supports double sided printing. Please use this and economy mode where possible to save toner and paper — let's destroy the world at the slowest rate possible!
