Directions

Car

The site is 2.5km east of Ford village. To get there, turn south off the B6353, along a lane signposted Kimmerston and park on the verge outside the entrance gate, taking care not to obstruct the gate. A permit is required to go on the bog itself, but there are bridleways at the northern and southern boundaries and there is a permissive path to the east.
