From the A10, leave at the junction signposted A414 to Harlow. At the first roundabout, take the B181 to St Margarets and Stanstead Abbotts. On entering St Margarets and just before the railway, turn left up Amwell Lane. After 1 km look out for a sign on the left to the reserve. Park on the side of Amwell Lane. Walk east down the rough track, over the railway line, taking care to look out for trains, then over the River Lee Navigation to a viewpoint overlooking the Reserve.
