Leave Jct 15 on the A46 towards Worcester.  At second roundabout that takes A46 traffic over the motorway take second exit, the B4463, to Henley in Arden.  At the T Junction with the A4185 turn left towards Henley in Arden and continue towards Claverdon.  Cross the M40 and take the 3rd. road on the left  signposted to Wolverton.  This is Saddlebow Lane. 

If you pass Claverdon railway station you have gone too far and should turn around in the lay-by on the right and look for the sign to Wolverton about 250 metres beyond the railway bridge and after a warning sign on the road side saying 125 yds.
