Neal Trust Reserve Warden Phil Douthwaite will guide us round the newest, BOS-manged
Nature Reserve

There is parking just off the Fosse Way B4455 (just outside the BOS area) at SP293512.

If you are coming from the Banbury area, take the B4086 through Kineton turning
left onto the Fosse Way, then the parking is on the left just past the left hand turn to
Combrook.  If you are coming from Shipston-on-Stour turn right onto the Fosse Way
just past Halford and continue up the B4455, crossing the A422 with care 
and the parking is on the right a couple of miles further on.

Although there is a track from the carpark it is quite rough and uneven and
we will also be walking into woodland.
