Turn right out of Didcot Parkway station then first left after the Ford garage and up Haydon road. At the mini roundabout at the top of Haydon road turn right onto the Broadway and continue straight over the next two mini roundabouts and straight over the roundabout by the Wallingford Arms pub onto the Wantage road.
Follow the road to Harwell village and follow the road through the village (left hand bend at the corner by the pubs). At the end of the village there is a T junction with the main A417 Reading to Wantage road. Turn right and then first left into the Winnaway.
The path is an Asphalt surface path to the left of the main track. Follow the path up to the top of the hill. At this point the main track finishes but the Asphalt path continues at the side of the field.
Follow the path until the junction with the A4185. Turn left onto the road down to Harwell main gate.
CAUTION: On the return journey the right hand turn onto the Winnaway can be a bit trickey because of the amount of traffic and speeds.
