Farmers Way looking west, Westlands, Droitwich Spa
Farmers Way connects the main road through the Westlands estate, Westwood Road, with the estate's centre. However there is not a great deal to get excited about at the centre, as the number of facilities it offers are surprisingly limited for an estate of this size. It does however have two fish & chip shops, both of which were closed despite it being a Saturday lunchtime. The only places open at that time appeared to be the local pub, and the Costcutters supermarket.

The estate originally housed many people who worked for the former British Leyland, later Rover Group etc, motor car works at Longbridge, Birmingham. Access to this was relatively easy by using the nearby A38 road. The declining factory finally closed in 2005. The estate was originally called Boycott after a local land-owning family but later was renamed Westlands.
