Enjoying your visit

Footpath – earthen surface. Path is very uneven through the woodland and can be slippery when wet. Lighting levels are poor in some parts. Look out for obstacles such as fallen trees and debris that may block your path. Take care to avoid overhanging tree branches and brambles. Continue your approach to the monument. The route is uneven and the grass can be slippery early in the day and following wet weather. Be aware of tree roots and tree saplings under foot. Please keep to the footpath.
