I usually start at the main car park; this gives you refreshments at the start and end of the walk. You can start at Binn Green car park, which will add 1km to this walk. With toilets at both sites, the choice is yours.

After passing the yacht club, you start the big climb up to Wimberry Rocks, making your way to grid ref 014025 and the scene of a crashed Dakota passenger plane; not much to see now though! Continue the steep ascent up the gully to the summit and path, this time to find a tunnel on your left at grid ref 022022, slightly below the summit. Continue on the path to 028015 at the intersection of paths; here you can set your compass on bearing 94deg, or carry on with the path to the access point and sign at 034017 (see Waymark 10) and find the little hollow on Blindstone Moss at 035015, with the remains of a Tiger Moth. This takes a little finding! Make your way to the embankment of Chew Reservoir, walk to the kink in the wall and you will see the faint path leading off to the left. This will eventually take you to Bramley's Cot, an old shepherd's hut, if you keep to the edge path, but the best way is to set your compass on a bearing that will take you directly across the moor to the location. After Fox Stone Cairn, it is all downhill to the car park. See also Walks 469, 1132 and 1137 for more information and walks in the area.
