Nice walk, but how do I get there?

Well you should go to the Tregare Street meeting point, be early we leave promptly.That way you can car share with others. But if you need instructions to get to the walk start point this page may be where you can find them.

A map reference, latitude and longitude for your sat. nav., a link to a map, or someone's helpful instructions. I’ve tried to make these directions correct. Apologies if they are not. All feedback will be welcome. Also if you follow the links to a map, you can zoom in or out, and change the map style to whichever you find easiest to read.
