Directions and Access to i54 pool
It lies off the Wobaston Road north of Pendeford. You come to a large roundabout, and it's well signed stating Jaguar i54. The walk starts adjacent to the main entrance. You can park just off the roundabout but only a couple of cars as there are double yellow lines. Stick to the path that takes you through the woodland. If you follow signs for the M54 it will lead you past another pool on your right where there's reedbeds etc. There will be an article in the next WMBC bulletin about the site (MFoz)
