The easiest route to Churchfields Farm from Redditch is through Droitwich via the B4090, take the A38 at the large roundabout out of Droitwich. Turn right by the Copcutt Elm pub to Salwarpe (there is a brown sign here to Churchfields Farm) follow the road and take the first left up this lane, (here is a signpost to Churchfields Farm) continue up the lane until you see another signpost at the entrance on the right hand side. It is quite a long driveway up to the car park. Leaders: Paul Boon (tel 01527 402267) and Jayne Simmons (tel 07973 904706)
