Continue along this road until you reach Lime Tree Avenue. Cross this busy road with care and turn right, walking on the wide grassy verge. After a few meters turn left along a tarmac road which is normally car free.


Soon after reaching an area of heathland you’ll notice an information board on your left. Just after this on your right you take a grassy track leading into woodland; as you bear left the path becomes more distinct. Continue along this path as it goes slightly uphill. Pass through a gate and just after this you’ll reach a tarmac road.
