Walking

Start:

The Old Sawmill car park

1

Leave the Old Sawmill car park through the entrance gates. Cross the road to a gap in the hedge, go through this gap and turn left. Follow the path towards the back of the old sawmill. Go through the hedge at this point.

2

Once through the hedge, the path immediately descends to the right following the hedge line. As you approach the woods turn left. Ignoring the public footpath over the dam, carry on for a few more yards and take the right track into the woods.

3

Once in the woods, follow the green trails posts. These will guide you around the three pools. Brim Pool is closest to the road, Seggy Pool is the middle pool and Wall Pool is the last pool that you will come across.

4

As you walk past Wall Pool look out for a sharp right turn down a steep bank. This is the dam of a fourth pool which is now a coppice. Follow this and turn right at the end.

5

You are now at the south side of the pools. Walk until you come to a field, go through and turn left to retrace your steps back uphill to the car park.

End:

The Old Sawmill car park
