Hazard Commentsort descending Description
Styles There are a couples of styles on the route

Styles over fences are not necessarily a hazard unless, of course, you are less mobile than you once were and have difficulty crossing them. They can also be quite high sometimes and occasionally one encounters a wooden style in need of repair.

Rough Ground There is some rough walking in parts around the southern side of the hill

Nature reserves exist for the wildlife and plants that are found there and are not always visitor friendly, especially some smaller reserves. The ground on some reserves can be very rough going even when there are paths present and would not be passable by those who are less mobile.

More site photos (see also link below): 

This map shows the location of the reserve (purple marker) and access points to the reserve (yellow markers). You can use the Google map controls to zoom in get a more detailed idea of where it is and where to park. If you click on a marker more information about directions,  sat nav co-ordinates and parking will display.
