Operation Lockdown 2020
September 9/10/11 1944.
Avoid taking the B4364 via Neenton. The road/track from there to the farm has degraded in recent years
Your best approach is to head to Bridgnorth and take the A458/B4368, come into the village via Monkhopton. The roads are wider that way
Once in Ditton (Derrington Rd)
- Drive past the small garage on the right
- Take the first Left by the Church, turning onto Station Rd
- Head down Station Rd/Brown Clee Rd for just over 1 Mile
- The Road will take a sharp Left. There will be a small row of cottages in front of you, TURN RIGHT here (Sign post for Neenton)
- The Entrance to the Farm yard is on your Right immediately after the Barn conversions on the Right
Head toward the top of the farm yard. Parking locations will be marked.
