When reaching this roundabout, head North and join the A621 signposted to Sheffield. Follow this road approx.,1-1/2 miles and then bear off to your right at a sign showing Shillito Woods Barlow and Millthorpe (Fox Lane). Follow Fox Lane until you arrive at a Junction marked Barlow to your right with signs to Shillito Woods carpark and Millthorpe ahead.Take the right turn to Barlow along Far Lane! until you reach buildings marked Kestrel Stone on your right.

Continue for another 50 yds past a large yellow grit bin on your left when  you will then see a sign "Moorhall Farm" a futher 10 yds. Follow the track to Moorhall Farm on your left for some 50 yds and finally turn right into the drive of ACORN HOUSE.
