This is a lovely little CL site near the little town of Saffron Walden is Essex. The town is about a 30 min walk (downhill) and has great pubs and restaurants. There is a market on Saturday. There are taxis around to bring you back up the hill again although some of us walked it last year.
This venue is the perfect place for gentle walk in the countryside of downhill to the town itself.
Directions: From The South: Leave the M11 at Junction 8 (Bishops Stortford / Stansted Airport). Follow the signs for the A120 Westbound towards Bishops Stortford & Puckeridge.
Continue straight over the first roundabout on the A120. At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the B1383 through Stansted Mountfitchet, Ugley, Quendon, and Newport.
After leaving Newport at the roundabout turn right towards Saffron Walden. After entering Saffron Walden, turn right at the first mini roundabout, and go straight over the second mini roundabout, and follow the road into the town. At the traffic lights turn right into George Street, at the next mini roundabout bear right (straight on) and go past the police station on your left, keeping left, go straight across the traffic lights, and past Tesco’s on your right hand side.
Leaving Saffron Walden, go up the twisty hill into Stewards End. Go through the village, passing the water tower on your right hand side, and where the road bears round to the right by the village hall, do not bear right, but go straight on into Redgates Lane.
The entrance to the site is no more than 20 or 30 yards from this junction, take the track on the left by the yellow fire hydrant sign, past the mail box for The Crows Nest, and into the field.
