This site is easily reached from the Ring Road (A6514) taking the road into town (B690) from the Bluecoats School Roundabout, then turning right as you pass Collins Cash & Carry.
Alternatively, coming out of town on the A610, you come over a railway bridge and immediately turn left at the traffic lights, then immediate left again to take you onto the Collins Cash & Carry access road.
In all cases, follow the road to the Collins entrance, then carry on up the track that goes between Collins & the demolition site / Car Park. Follow the track round 2 bends, & you'll see our gate ahead of you on the left hand side, behind the new orchard.
From the South, follow the A609 until you reach St. Peter's Street. Follow this to New Road on the left which ends in a track. Keep on this, over the railway & through a narrow path to Windmill.
If you are having difficulty finding us, please call 07816899978 and we'll give you more details.
