If coming through Shrewsbury take the Welsh Bridge then turn left at Dave Mellor cycles into Silkmoor, if you reach Majestic Wines you’ve gone too far! Follow signs to FRA, we’re on the first floor of the building facing you.

 

If coming from the A5 go past Majestic Wines and then turn right into Silkmoor just before Dave Mellors Cycles, if you reach Frankwell roundabout then you’ve gone too far, just go round the roundabout and turn left at the cycle shop.
