From the bus stops on B6428 Cow Lane, walk towards and turn down East Street, and then left onto the access road to walk behind the houses. Follow this road around and turn left at the end onto a track called Tup Lane. Continue along the track, through the trees and around the business park, turning left at the corner to reach the entrance of the park. Carry on, with the business park on your left along Westoff Lane to meet houses at the edge of the village of South Hiendley.

At the corner with the farm lane on the left, turn right to follow Tun Lane. At the triangle junction with the main road, turn left and then left at the roundabout onto George Street. Just before the triangle School roadsign, turn left down the footpath snicket and follow this past the school.
