The Observing Field is only a 10-15 minute walk from the Science Site and Hill Colleges and can easily be found using the following map and directions.

Map showing the Obs Field

From the Department of Physics, leave the Science Site and walk up the hill towards Grey, Collingwood and Trevs etc. Cross at the set of lights and head straight up the footpath towards Mary's. Walk along Mary's drive and then turn right at the end. Cross the road and then turn left at the next junction. You will now be on Potters Bank. Head up this road until you see a narrow road leading off on the right hand side. This is signed Observatory House. Cross the road and go up through the gateposts. You will walk past a house on your left before getting to the top of the hill. On your left is the Field!

From the Bailey you can walk across Prebends Bridge and up to the road at the top. Then head left to the roundabout where you go right and start heading up hill. Again this is Potters Bank and you will find the entrance to the Field on the right hand side after 5-10 minutes walk.
