but just follow the lane.

Cross the style and continue on the track.

Continue straight on down the track ignoring

the turns to the right.




At the end of the lane is a gate with a gap

to the right of it, you can run through this gap.

The finish is just before the road.

If you have problems parking near the finish of this stage, it is suggested that you park your car in Yatesbury Lane or in the lay-by nearby, whilst you wait for your colleague who is running.

To get to The White Horse Inn, our Headquarters for the afternoon, drive to the turning for Cherhill, turn right up Marsh Lane (see Map) and continue for 2½ miles to Compton Bassett.
