How to get there

Address

Blackmoor Copse, Salisbury, UK

Location details

If driving - travelling from Salisbury on the A343 /A30 to Andover, take first turn right signposted to Pitton and Farley. Drive through village of Pitton, passing Silver Plough pub on your left, following signs for Farley. In Farley take left turn into Church Road and then the next left turn into Ben Lane. Continue on Ben lane until you reach junction with Long Drove (signposted East Grimstead and Winterslow). Main entrance to Blackmore Copse is on left just before this junction at grid reference SU234288. There is limited parking on the wide road verge. Please be aware that in a rural county postcodes often cover wide areas; some may point you to a reserve entrance, others may direct you to its centre and others may simply direct you to the reserve's vicinity. If using bus - number 36 bus stops in East Grimstead. From here it is a 15 minute walk along Long Drove. If cycling - leave National Cycle Route 24 in East Grimstead and follow Long Drove to reserve entrance.
