Continue on the A6 until crossing the bridge and reaching The Family Tree tea rooms in Whatstandwell. As the road bears to the right take the left hand turn towards Crich. After a short distance turn left onto Robin Hood Road and continue until reaching the village of Holloway where you need to turn left onto Yew Tree Hill.
