The 4th building is Yew Tree Lodge that provides additional changing facilities and informal indoor activity space for games and free time complete with a football table, pool table, darts board and various equipment for ball games and badminton. Yew Tree can be used as a multi-functional space for presentations, meetings and team building in wet weather.
