Directions to MROC Events
Always look out for Club signs to help find the entrance !
Remember Post Codes are often not very precise in the countryside - so ignore the PostCodes included on Google Maps (we can't delete them !)
Longitude / Latitude map refs can be added directly to Google Maps & most SatNavs & are very accurate.We've also added What3Words (W3W) references as they are becoming much more common & are much accurate than PostCodes. More mapping guidance here

Eastnor Sheep Field (NOT the camp site !)
If travelling direct to Scrutineering / Signing-On, go the Sheep Field via the centre of Eastnor Village & follow the signs to the Eastnor Pottery & The Ledbury Wine Cellar up the lane (15 MPH speed limit & rough !).
Continue up the lane past the Pottery & on for just over 0.5 miles, following “MROC” signs.
Beware 90 degree uphill bend to the left near the end at what may appear to be a junction.
Follow the track through the 2 gates at the top & park in the field
(DO NOT PARK on the hardstanding area which is always in use by Land Rover Experience). See the extra sketch showing the route
Spectators : Note Spectator cars are not allowed in the woods due to the tight tracks / lack of space. Please park in the field & walk into the woods (NB At least 0.5m to the woods & 0.5m + in the woods !)

Wagtail is the historic name for a site at Granby Farm, midway between Halford, Idlicote & Tredington & approx 10 miles South East of Stratford upon Avon.
It's a fun site that we've not used for a few years, but previously used it for RTV & CCV trials & Fun / Open Days. The name comes from Wagtail Spinney, the wood on the North edge of the site). Apart from the wood, there aren't any trees to avoid !
