BELOW: There is no-where to park on the B729 near the start of the Moorbrock Estate road. There's a 'No Parking' sign on the gate to ensure that vehicles do not obstruct the entrance.

BELOW: Green Hill. The dirt road I followed goes through Moorbrock Lodge—seen on the right—then up the clearing seen behind it, then left at the top of the trees and along the side of Green Hill. [Gary]

BELOW (next 2 photos) : A much shorter but boggier route is to go through this clearing (red arrow on next photo) just before reaching the lodge. I wanted to get an idea of how long I needed to reach the 'Blue Peter' Spitfire crash site further up the valley so took a longer route via Green Hill. [Gary]
