It can be difficult to park here when the school is open. If so, there is a car park and roadside parking in Washwell lane beside the White Hart Pub.


  1. Leave the car park and then turn left along the high street. Continue to the White Hart pub and then turn left into Washwell Lane. When the road bears right into Courthope Avenue continue downhill on Washwell lane. Near the bottom of the hill cross the stile on the right and then turn left and follow the path as it curves right up the slope.

  2. Continue to follow the path across the field to a stile in the far corner. Cross the stile and then turn left on the access road and follow until it turns left, here keep right on the access road to the waste water treatment plant. At the waste water treatment plant turn left onto a path beside the fence and follow to a stile.

  3. Cross the stile into a field and follow the left-hand side of the field. Cross a stile into the next field and then continue in the same direction to a gateway. Turn left through the gateway and then immediately turn right to a stile. Cross the stile to join an enclosed path to the main road. Turn left along the main road and follow into Wadhurst and back to the car park.
