Travel out of Knaresborough on the B6165 to Ripley. After about 2miles you will come out of a 40mph zone, just after a turn off to the right to Scotton. A further 1/2mile along the B6165 will bring you to Addyman’s recycling centre on your left.Take the turn off down the lane adjacent to the centre and follow it down to the car park on the left, just before the main gates to the private house. Do not obstruct any access and use the car parks provided.

To access the top section go through the little gate by the river and, keeping to the edge of the lawn, head towards the weir. Cross over the mill stream by means of the wooden bridge. Pegs are 46 to 28.

Pegs at the bottom section are 47 to 70 starting at the weir. Pegs 50 to 55 are in the field and the rest are in the wood.
