The Far Side is on the opposite side of the road (R62). Park in the parking area before Legoland and walk over the bridge (river) towards Montagu, then jump over the small fence to walk to the crag ahead of you on your right. Take car walking over the bridge as it is not very wide.

Aspect: Morning Sun / Afternoon Shade. Walk-in time: 5 minutes
