  • Directions to Bell Foot – there's limited parking up there so it maybe good to park at the village primary school & walk up the hill (or car-share up the hill); we probably have room for 5 cars & still be able to let farm vehicles pass. When you get to Crosby Ravensworth Primary School (CA10 3JJ), cross the small bridge sign-posted Bank Head almost opposite the school & follow this lane up hill, round a sharp 90 degree right hand bend & continue up the hill. Pass Bank Farm on your left. Turn in left at the next white-washed cottage where you will see our sign. Please wear appropriate footwear & clothing for gardening!
  • Please bring a soil sample from their garden or veg plot with them if you wish (we just need a small amount from a little way beneath the surface)
  • Please bring a pair of gardening gloves if you have any (we have some but not enough for everyone)
