How can we get there?

Coordinates:
Geographical feature:
 
Start location:end of Mill Lane
End location:end of Mill Lane
 
Route:Cross the bridge at the end of Mill Lane and then take an immediate left following the river. Keep following as close to the river as you can. The path might be a bit overgrown, but there’s definitely one there. You will pass under a bridge and then eventually come to the end of the field where the track will loop back on the other side of that field. Follow that track until you are opposite the Mill Lane bridge again.
 
(continued)On your left, you will see a small wooden arched bridge taking you into another field facing the Great Denham housing estate. Take the immediate right through a gate that takes you into the adjacent field and then take the immediate left and follow this path for a little while. After 10 or so minutes you will near a lake/river and then you will have to take another left back into the main field heading towards the housing estate. This path will run out when you reach the buildings, at which point you can turn around and return back the way you came.
