A key point is the Trumpet crossroads, where the A417, A4172 and A438 meet, with its garage, inn, art/craft centre and tea room. We are just 15 minutes from the M50 motorway, about two and a half hours from London and little over an hour from South Wales and the West Midlands and we have a range of accommodation suggestions on our accommodation page.
There is a large field next to Putley Parish Hall that we use for car parking. If at all possible please park here and walk to the other venues as they all have much more limited parking available. Please take care driving in and out as there will be many pedestrians about.
Postcodes are provided for the main locations but please be aware that rural postcode areas can be quite large and you could be taken to a point some distance from the actual event – look out for the signs on the roadside.
If you wish to come by public transport, the nearest bus stop is at Poolend on the A438 Ledbury-Hereford road, which is about 20-25 minutes walk from Putley (see map). The DRM 476 service between Hereford and Ledbury stops here.
Dogs are generally welcome in the countryside. However, as Putley Parish Hall has sales tables selling drink and food, we ask that only Guide Dogs enter the hall. If taking a walk you should note that many of the fields have farm animals in them so please take the usual precautions. Some of our guided walks are specifically for observing local wildlife so please no dogs on these walks.
