In order to setup VPNs it is best to avoid NAT if at all possible as it
REALLY complicates matters.

You need to set up 2 IP addresses on the Netgear, one for the LAN which
is on a different subnet to the Zoom and one for the port which is on
the same subnet as the Zoom.

Try setting up the networks as follows:
Dudley LAN GW:
Dudley Netgear     LAN:  WAN:  GW:
Dudley Zoom        IP:
Halesowen Zoom     IP:
Halesowen Netgear  LAN:  WAN:  GW:
Halesowen LAN
