We Suggest

P1     Park at Eaves Wood
There is a Trail bus stop at this location. You can follow the National Trust Sculpture Trail to venue 1 into Eaves Wood and drop down to Park Road (10 mins) or Cove Road (15 mins). We do not advise walking on Park Road which is a main access road to the village.

P2     Park at the Golf Club
There is a Trail bus stop at this location. You can walk across the fairway footpath to The Row, the footpath on the bend to Bottoms Lane cross the road, and then across the field which brings you into the village behind St. John’s Church. This is a lovely walk of about 25 mins.

P3     Park at Gibraltar Farm – at the end of Lindeth Road.
A 10 minute easy walk along Lindeth Road will bring you to the venues on Shore Road. Another 5 minutes will take you to the centre of the village.
It is then possible to make a circuit via Townsfield and Cove Road up to the Leed’s Childrens’ Home and return by a most beautiful route over The Lots back to Shore Road and then back to the car park.

A 5 minute walk will bring you to the centre of the village and a 10 minute walk will take you to the venues at the end of Lindeth Road.
