  3. Not long after the car  park there is another road which runs off to the left of Nursery  Lane – take this new road.
  4. At the end of this road is a footpath, continue on to it.
  5. Follow this footpath all the way to the edge  of the River Don, at which point you need to take the new footpath to the right.
