Getting onto NEW MOOR (Grid ref: SE7205)

Please park sensibly by River Torne at end of Sand Lane, Wroot. Cross the river and follow track north until you reach the Moorbank Wood, cross the bridge over drain and immediately turn right, follow for approx 1/4 mile then take the first track off to the left (recently mown); follow this for roughly 1/8 -1/4 mile until you reach a T junction where the track you are on, meets the main limestone tramway, turn right (East) here and follow a few hundred metres with birch scrub on the left. You will then see the first cell on New Moor  also on your left. It is a few more hundred metres further to the third cell (approx a mile or so from River).

Alternatively, if you are already on Packard’s South (SE6905), follow the limestone raised tramway ESE until it bends north follow until you have Lindholme Island (the area with the very mature Birch trees, take the next right and follow until you run out of birch scrub on your left, continue for a few more hundred metres and it has been on the third pool on the left this morning. WARNING it is well over a mile from the western end of Packards to where the birds are using this route!
