L1

517/519

There is a limited, Warwickshire supported, 517/519 Flexibus service which passes through Holt End. However, this does not run every day and only a few times per day. If  you wish to use public transport it is probably better to combine this with walk S2 and use the frequent 57/58 service..

S1

Take the No 57 or 58 and descend at Church Hill Centre. This is the same starting point as the Car Park.

S2

All these walks start from the town centre. The bus and railway stations are at the bottom of Unicorn Hill. Walks T2 and T5 go past the bus station and so you could begin there.
