In Handsacre turn right onto the A513/B5014 to Abbots Bromley/Uttoxeter (alternatively, stay on the A515 at Seedy Mill, turn left onto the A513 just before Kings Bromley then right onto the B5014 to Abbots Bromley). On entering Abbots Bromley go round a left bend by the Coach & Horses pub and the entry to the pool is on the left just before the zebra crossing.
From Rugeley – leave Rugeley on the B5103 (under the railway bridge by the Yorkshireman pub). Follow the road over Blithfield reservoir and, at the end, turn right for Abbots Bromley. Go through the village and over the zebra crossing. The pool entrance is on the right immediately after the crossing.
NB. The pool is on the opposite side of the road to the main school buildings.
