Follow the Geology Trail and eventually you come to a fork in the path at some woodland, we turned left at this fork and eventually we arrived at a sign at the far end of walk for Cuckoos Nook and continued straight ahead across two fields which is public footpath and part of Beacon Way which lead back out onto Sutton Road.
