How do I find Views Farm?
The location is conveniently just west of the M40. From the north
leave the M40 at J8A then travel a few miles south on country lanes
to reach Views Farm which is up on a ridge known as Windmill Hill.
From the south leave the M40 at J7 and go west on the B4009
towards Watlington and then turn right (north) on the B480 to Stadhampton,
then right again on the A329 to Great Milton. See guide
maps from the M40 to the Study Centre.
