Access 

There is free open access to the site with through a network or permissive footpaths, with a public footpath (the Blackwater Valley Path) running along the northern perimeter.

The Meadow and the Workings are best viewed from Horton's Mound, although there is also a viewing point to the west of Horton's Mound, on the southern footpath, where a gap in the bushes allows the Meadow to be viewed.

Public access into the Meadow, Workings and Works is strictly prohibited on health & safety and wildlife protection grounds. The footpaths and Horton's Mound can become very muddy following wet weather so wellies are recommended.

The unimproved nature of the site means that it is currently not suitable for wheelchair users. However, gates with “radar” locks have been installed on Badshot Lea Road (at SU 86712 48939) and Low Lane (at SU 86677 48700) to enable easier access by disabled visitors. A keen local birder with mobility impairment has invested in an off-road capable mobility scooter which allows him to successfully access and enjoy the site.
