By bus: No. 14 from Swansea
• (If you have come along the M4, take the exit at Junction 42)
• Head along Oystermouth Road (the main road which follows along Swansea Bay) towards Mumbles.
• Oystermouth Road merges into Mumbles Road (A4067).
• You will pass the University on your right.
• You will go straight through a major set of traffic lights.
• Make sure you are in the right hand lane.
• You will pass the Texaco petrol station on your left.
• Take the next right sign posted ‘Gower’ onto the Mayals Road (B4436).
• Keep going straight on this road and you will soon be on the Common.
• Keep going straight – this is still the B4436 but is known as ‘Northway’.
• Take a left on Murton Green Road sign posted ‘Murton’. (If you go past a small petrol station on
your right you have gone too far!)
• Take a left at the ‘T’ junction onto Manselfield Road towards Manselfield.
• The road narrows, go past a number of houses and you will see a grass verge on your right.
• At the grass verge, pull in to the track. (If you go past a BT Payphone on your right you have just gone past the grass verge).
• On the track, drive past the grass verge and turn right down the single lane track.
• Please drive slowly as this track is also a bridleway and footpath – for about 30 metres -and you’ll see our wooden gate and barn on the left side.
• If you’d rather not drive down a slightly bumpy track, please park up at the top around the grass verge and be careful to not block access.
