Almost wished I had driven up but thankfully not - track thru' Ratcheugh Wood leads to private occupied property with no room to park or turn. A mown grassy walkway round E side of house. Top roped off but easy to access with a short trespass - no issues.carole engel26/08/2019
Parked on road to SW, walked up the lane to the folly which seems to be used as a house.bevandy11402/04/2019
