Directions to outdoor field at Highfield (map)


From  Highfield Road

Turn in at the gate in Highfield Lane, pictured below.  The post code of the adjacent house is AL4 0RE. The gate will usually be open, but club members can use either their key or ring the field captain if it’s not.  Drive to the end of the track, where it bends to the left onto the car park. Be aware there is a large sleeping policeman towards then end of the track.


The field captain has a mobile phone that you can ring if you are having difficulty finding us.  (07906 234 038)

Please note that this number is only monitored while we are setting up and will be switched off once we start shooting.  

It  will receive texts but voice mails will not be retrieved.


Beginners using club kit should send a text to let the field captain know you are coming so we can set the field up appropriately and bring the correct bows etc.
