How to get here
The closest station is Kelvedon. From here, you can cycle or catch a bus to Tollesbury.
Catch a bus to Tollesbury, then walk north along sea-wall for approximately two miles.
Follow directions to Tolleshunt D'Arcy. Turn left at village maypole then right into Chapel Road (back road to Tollesbury). After approx 1 mile (1.6 km), turn left into Old Hall Lane. Please therefore do not park in the lane. This leads to Old Hall Farm, then go around the garden in front of farmhouse, over speed ramps and through the iron gates to cattle grid, follow signs straight ahead to car park.
