How to get here
Collingham is the nearest railway station. From here, follow Station Road into the village. At the crossroad by the Royal Oak pub, turn left and follow the main road past the King’s Head pub, then turn right towards The Village Green. Bear left onto Church Street and carry straight onto Cottage Lane. Continue south for half a mile until you come to a sharp left-hand bend, where you will find the entrance.
The no. 67 bus service from Newark-on-Trent to Collingham will stop near Cottage Lane if requested.
National Cycle Route 64 runs along the eastern boundary and past the site entrance.
At the Newark Showground roundabout, take the A1133 exit signposted towards Gainsborough and Collingham. After 2.5 miles, immediately after the level crossing, turn left into Cottage Lane. The gated entrance to the car park is 50m along the lane. Any drivers of vehicles higher than 2.2m must call ahead (01636 893611, Mon-Fri 9am-4pm) to request that the height barrier is manually opened on their arrival.
