From the Sailing Club, zero miles, go West along the esplanade and at the 2nd mini roundabout at the Bedford Hotel take the 2nd exit onto the B3176 Station Road.

At the next mini roundabout turn right into All Saints Road.
At the next mini roundabout at the bottom of the road turn left, and go straight up through the town.
At 1.5 miles follow the road around to the right signposted Sidbury, Honiton, Lyme Regis.
At Sidford Cross traffic lights go straight ahead and take the A375 towards Honiton.
Enter Sidbury and go straight ahead until you reach the war memorial, (3.4 miles) which is tucked on the left of a sharp right hand bend. DO NOT GO AROUND THE BEND, (if you pass the church on your right you have gone too far) turn sharp left signposted Greenhead and carry on up the lane for 1.6 miles.
On reaching the top the road flattens out before a sharp right hand bend signposted East Hill Strips with the arm pointing to OSM. At this post turn left into the car park.
Allow plenty of time as this is a narrow lane with few passing places. There are a couple of other routes known to the locals but this is the easiest.
Good Luck
