Although I visited this site in the height of summer (2009) the first field you walk through at the bottom of the hill was very, very wet - luckily I had my wellies in the car. Follow Postman's directions and you will be there in about 10 minutes. I had the place to myself, blue sky and a bird or prey hovering overhead - bliss. Posted by CARL
