Could you tell me where this is please? I must say it looks a bit on the grim side.

Ken, about 100 yards down from New Springs Pharmacy take the signposted footpsth on the right, go past the allotments you will come to it on the left. it may look grim, but if you follow the outlet stream you enter Haigh Plantations. See John's pic June 20th. Cheers H.
