Alongside the road, facing north is a footpath. Follow this down to a gate (National Trust Plate on it) Go through gate and walk towards the large hill in front of you (Melbury Hill) keeping fence on your left. After 800 meters you will find a gate (no 4) on your left. Through this and turn slightly left. You will see a bowl. Good here for Westerly and SouWesterly.
