We start and end at the excellent Maltsters Arms pub so, if you want to spoil yourself further, come early for a pre-expedition pint and round things off the next day with a full English breakfast (not included in the price!). 

Normally start 1600-1730.  Back ashore 1100 approx. the following day.
