At the bottom of the drive, turn left (signed Humberlands). The grid reference is TM075312. There is a bus stop at Garden City; Humberlands is a short walk down permissive paths and bridleways from there. (W3W cookbooks.wiped.late)

Weather permitting we will spend about two hours exploring the site. Depending on how things go, there may be an option for another hour in the afternoon and if you would like to stay on, please bring a picnic lunch. If you’re not able to bring lunch, there are shops in Manningtree which is five minutes or so away by car.

You will need decent footwear (some areas are quite uneven and there are lots of springs, so some spots can be permanently damp/boggy), appropriate clothing depending on the weather and maybe sun block. Obviously the event is weather dependent. It is essential to book your place by contacting Liz Cutting who is also happy to provide any further information you need. Email cutting.liz@yahoo.com preferred but those without email facilities are welcome to phone 01206 394184 and leave a message and a contact phone number if there is no reply.
