Directions to Gap Show from M6
Take Jn 9 from the M6 and take the exit from the island signposted Walsall (From the North that is the first exit and from South, the 3rd exit)
Follow the rd (dual carriageway) keeping in the right hand lane.
The road forks after around 50yrds going through a set of traffic lights. Keep right and follow the right hand land signposted ring road/Lichfield. You will be on 'The Broadway'.
Once through the traffic lights, get over to the left hand lane. Go past Morrisons, through the traffic lights next to it, to another set of traffic lights. Keep heading straight on.
Follow 'The Broadway' for around a mile and a half. This will take you through another set of traffic lights and over several-teen islands! Just remember, keep going straight on, following the signs for Lichfield/Walsall.
After around the mile and a half, you will come to the Arboretum. If you look to your right, the row of houses lining the broadway will stop and you will see a railing set back with a broad grass verge in front of it. There is a driveway and a small sign pointing to the Arboretum. Turn right up that driveway and you'll be there.
Just a note...... If after drving down the broadway, you come to a very large island and can see a Safeway Supermarket, you have gone too far! Turn round and you will come to the entrance on your left.
