After a further 2.4 km stop on the nearside verge opposite a pair of houses.

Continue on the road, crossing the border and passing a large double-arch lime kiln on the left. Limestone was worked in shallow quarries on the hillside beyond, but the beds are thin and the overburden increases rapidly into the hillside. After 2.5 km the road emerges from the forest, crosses a stone bridge and a cattle grid. Turn right immediately into a level grassy area by the stream.
