HOW TO FIND IT TQ9 5TG. The site fronts onto Maudlin Road. By car: From Cistern Street (top of town) turn into The Lamb and immediately right into Leechwell Street. After the Kingsbridge Inn, turn left into Maudlin Road and the site is after about 80 yards on the right.

The site may also be reached on foot via the ancient Leechwell Lane path: From South Street, walk down Leechwell Lane, turn right and cross the road. Opposite the lower entrance to Heath's Nursery carpark, walk into the old Leechwell Lane and follow this lane to the end [where it's steep] in Maudlin Road, bearing left at the Leechwells on the way. The site is after about 40 yards on the right. By appointment with Luscombe Maye, the site may also be viewed from our clients' property in Kingsbridge Hill and it occupies the end section of their garden. 

TOTNES The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-a-week market and full of small independent shops, it's well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station and Dartmoor, the South Hams and many of its fine beaches are within easy reach.
