Follow Hockey Hill down past the village hall and school and turn left at the T Junction marked Cedars Hill. At the top of the hill take the second turning right onto a concrete driveway, (almost opposite the D.I.Alston Farm sign on the left hand side) follow the driveway (slowly please,chickens ahead !) and park. The plan below should also help.(The dotted line shows the walking route..walk as for car guidance, but turn left at the field and concrete pad entrance off hockey hill and follow the track around).
