Today we return to Newtown Common, working on the east side of B4640, where we will be cutting large hollies, pulling some smaller ones and possibly having a bonfire depending on the weather.
Owing to limited space, we’ll be parking in 2 separate areas just off the B4640. Here are directions from the Swan Inn roundabout – coming from Newbury take the second exit to the B4640 signposted Winchester, Oxford and Andover, going past the Swan Inn on your left. For the first parking area, after about half a mile along the B4640, at the brow of the hill, turn right at the pale blue sign for Horris Hill School and park at the side of the road. Then walk south along the path under the power lines, parallel to the B4640, for about a quarter of a mile to the second parking area.
If there’s not enough room to park when you turn towards Horris Hill School, drive about a quarter of a mile further along the B4640, turn right by the small post box and park at the side of the road.
