Park at the Snowshill village car park (GR 097 340). If no space here, use the immediately adjacent NT carpark just to the North. Meet at the start of the footpath at the entrance to the NT carpark at 10.00.

The walk is ~5 km and will take 2-3 hrs. The climb up out of the Snowshill valley is quite steep, and muddy after rain.
