You can also access Yeatsall Lane from Abbots Bromley High Street via taking Goose lane (signed posted to the Police Station) and turning right at the top of the hill. Please take care and note that this is a single-track lane with passing places and there will be quite a few vehicles arriving at the same time on Saturday in addition to the normal traffic.

The nearest postcode is WS15 3DE but this will not take your there exactly –you arrive on site, please follow the signs
