From the green, head eastwards towards Winfrith for about 1/4 mile, then turn right up the gravel track by the village sign, the open limit speed signs and the blue 'P' sign.

The road between Bere Regis and Wool passes Monkey World and is the best route from the north and north-east. We recommend the following routes:

The access bridleway

At the village sign, 30mph and 'P' signs, turn left onto the bridleway, passing the Limekiln House sign and the small car parking area, now unimaginatively  named 'New Close Car Park', on the left.  Pass 'New Close Bungalow' on the left and keep going carefully up the farm track for a further 120 yards. Turn right immediately before the metal farm gate at the top of the slope. Drive through a metal farm gate and the wooden house gate, onto the Limekiln gravel parking area. We suggest that you park facing Winfrith Hill across the valley and leave the space in front of the garage free to turn cars. Please leave the garage doors free for maintenance use.
