      The main entrance to the site is off Wood Lane near to the entrance to Carlton le Willows

             Car or Mini Bus
             A small stoned parking area is available just inside the gate. This access is only
             suited to parking a mini bus or three cars.

             Note: turning is difficult at this point because of the blind bend and narrow nature
             of Wood Lane.

             Bus or Coach
             Bus transport would require dropping off at the bottom of Wood Lane/ Shearing
             Hill and walking the party about 300 metres up Wood Lane.

             Note: the footpath width up Wood Lane is narrow and for a short distance there is
             no path on the blind bend that leads to the main entrance.
