Re: Arthurs and Cedars Wood

an alternative probably easier and shorter way to get there -

bus (44 from M'cr Picc) or train to Heald green, left out of station, left at lights past T-junction and garage, take 2nd left down Holly Lane, right at T junction at end, follow road round to left, Cedars Wood camp on left just before road ends, go across field from Cedars to get to Arthurs.

To be put on a phone tree/list please call Vanessa on 0161-227-9014

We are trying to organise vehicles for that week so we can get down there on the morning and those that want to should be able to get into the trees. Please call with offers of vehicles and have harnesses ready to bring if you want to go in the trees.
