In Hope take the Edale Road (opposite the church and by the side of the Old Hall pub), carry on passed the Hope primary school which is on your left continue for a about 200yds then turn right down a lane marked “no through road” (Hope cemetery also called Bowden Lane) If you go passed the Cheshire Cheese pub you have missed the turning.
