If you are in the plastic camp the field is over the road from the main site. With the tramway village on your right, it is on the left as you go down hill opposite the White detached cottage. There is a gate , which may be closed but not locked. Drive through and usually we camp on the left near the road.
If you are period camping, drive in to the main carpark and carry on through. At the ticket, there is a left turn which will take you across the tramlines, pass the bandstand on the right, and carry round to the left. We will be in that area.
