Good free carpark at 024751. I followed the disused railway line round to a blocked tunnel - a slight path has been trampled up the left side of the tunnel entrance, it seems to go in the wrong direction but does lead round to the top. Unfortunately I didn't find that out until coming back down ;) One fence to climb on the way, but with a helpful written note attached telling you to do so!the_adam21/07/2015
