Directions:  car park is off the B4000 between Lambourn and Ashbury.

Accessibility:  Field footpaths, some on grass/scrubby downland but mostly ploughed field edges so muddy if wet. Two steep sections.  There are no public toilets.

For refreshments bring a packed lunch or there are local pubs afterwards.
