How to get to the gathering
This year’s gathering happened at Crabapple Community at Berrington Hall , Berrington, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY5 6HA
The community is a few miles south of Shrewsbury, ½ mile from Berrington village, and 1 mile from the larger village of Cross Houses. See exact location here.
Coming by public transport?
The nearest train station and coach station is Shrewsbury. If coming a long distance by train it can sometimes be cheaper to split your ticket. Check national rail for train times and prices.
National Express run a coach between London and Aberystwyth that stops at Shrewsbury and goes via Birmingham.
You can then get the number 436 bus from Shrewsbury bus station or a taxi to Cross Houses until 6pm.
There will be pick ups from the Cross Houses on Friday, please call the number at the bus stop when you arrive.
If you have any difficulty getting to us from Shrewsbury ring 07784 506494
The camp itself is about 1 mile from the bus stop. From the bus stop at Cross Houses, walk back towards Shrewsbury past the petrol station (on your right) and take the first left turn signed ‘Berrington’. After about 1/2 mile, the road forks at the edge of the village. Take the right turn signposted ‘Betton Abbots’ and we’re about 1/4 mile up the road on the right.
You can easily cycle the few miles from the train station to the site, routes are shown on this map.
There is a taxi rank just outside Shrewsbury train station. Accessible taxis can be got from here – but it is MUCH cheaper to book a cab from a local company – Comet Cabs 01743 344444, or Vincent Cabs 01743 367777. Vincents also have a booking office just across the road from the station, which is handy if you don’t have a phone to book a cab in advance.
If you are driving?
Berrington Hall is a few miles south of Shrewsbury. If you are heading towards Shrewsbury on the A5, take the A458 towards Bridgenorth towards the village of Cross Houses and take the turning marked Berrington on the right just before the petrol station. After about ½ mile, the road forks at the edge of the village. Take the right turn signposted ‘Betton Abbots’ and we’re about ¼ mile up the road on the right.
Important note: Google maps and other Sat Navs pin the postcode at a neighbouring property. Berrington Hall is further up the road from the location shown. See exact location (with the route marked from Shrewsbury) here.
Also note that there is a Berrington Hall run by the National trust near Leominster, make sure you don’t go there by mistake!
We would like to limit the number of car journeys to the site and you can find information here for co-ordinating car sharing.
Car-parking on site is limited, and you may be asked to take your car to the village hall around 1 mile away after dropping off your bags. This is more likely to happen in boggy, wet conditions to prevent anyone becoming stuck in the field.
