Directions - From the M25 (J6) proceed north on the A22 towards London. Continue through the traffic lights to Wapses Lodge roundabout and take the 5th exit signed Woldingham. Continue under the viaduct keeping slightly left (NOT sign posted Woldingham School to the right of the viaduct pillar). Follow the main road for around a mile, past Knight's Garden Centre and turn right into Church Road, at the left bend in the road, outside Woldingham train station, go straight over, into Church Road, parallel to the train line . After 500 yards and before the gates ahead of you turn right, over the railway, by the sign 'Marden Park Farm'.Follow the drive into the farm around to the left and to the brick paved drive. Fox Barn is the house with a balcony, park anywhere outside. Very important - do NOT to rely on SatNav - but approach Church Road from the north/Woldingham station end. The Southern end starts off innocently, then becomes a steep, rocky, narrow path which eats Landrovers.
