From Newcatle-Under-Lyme, travelling north along the A34 until you meet the roundabout with the A500. Carry on along the A34 until you come to the next roundabout and take the left exit. At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit into the village of Talke Pits. Keep on this road for approximately 3/4 mile until you come to the Skylark Pub on the left. Turn left here to go down Pit Lane. You will need to park on the right, opposite the industrial estate and being careful not to block any farm gates. The track leading to the reserve is on the right of this road and is identified by a metal barrier which you can walk round. It is approximately a 1/4 mile walk along this track to get to the entrance of the reserve. The entrance is currently indicated by a post & rail fence and there is a pedestrian gate into the woodland.
