Turn right at the interchange onto Park Road and travel past the farm on your right hand side. Continue along Park Road and in 200 metres on your right is an access road marked PRIVATE - Farm Track.

From Little Bromley / Lawford
You must travel from this direction onto Hilliards Road and you need to make sure your SAT NAV takes you onto Hilliards Road. To do this you need to turn right onto Church Road at the war memorial. At the end of Church Road, turn left onto Spratts Lane and then left onto Hilliards Road. As you travel along Hilliards Road there is a sizeable mast on your left. Turn left onto the track marked PRIVATE - Farm Track which may be marked as Paynes Lane on your SAT NAV. If you have travelled towards Chase Road E / Park Road, but if you have reached this interchange which adjoins Park Farm you have travelled too far.
SAT NAVs from this direction try to put you onto a private farm track which is marked as Paynes Lane. This is not an accessible road to the dog walking field and there is no access to the field from this direction. If you reach a closed farm gate saying Private Farm Track, you will need to turn around and turn left back onto Bentley Road until you reach the war memorial and turn left here. Then follow the directions above.
