Trees viewed from under a bridge

Note: June 2021. We have been made aware that the field gate mentioned on page 11 is padlocked. We recommend that when you go through the wall stile, you take the right-hand path instead that will take you to the road. Turn left on the road until the bend, where you will see a footpath on your left. Turn left onto the footpath which will take you into the wood where you can rejoin the original footpath.
