Accessibility statement

APDS Training Centre and Training Field are located off the A49 between Leominster and Hereford, on top of Dinmore Hill. The road off the A49 is steep and narrow, so care should be taken when driving. The roads are regularly gritted in winter, so they normally stay accessible all year round.

From the A49, take the turning for Hope Under Dinmore village, going under a railway bridge and then left up the hill. You will then turn right at the top of the hill, over a speed bump, past a white cottage. You will then find the training field on your left hand side after the white cottage.

The car park will be opened for you no more than 10 minutes before your session starts. You will then access the training field by walking through a 2m metal farm gate onto the grass field, there is a slight incline up the fields to the area where we normally train. We set out training pods using windbreakers to divide the area at the top of the field and there is also a shed that contains a toilet and equipment. The toilet is accessed via a lip and it is a very narrow camping toilet it would not be suitable to access with a wheelchair.
