Disabled AccessThe Mill Lane is an unmade track about 130m long. The festival entrance is another 160m along Mill Field. The Mill Field itself is a meadow, and whilst the grass isn’t cut ‘lawn short’, it can be a little bit uneven in places. The festival site is approximately 370m end to end. The terrain is flat, with only some small undulations towards the second stage area, but there are no solid walkways on site. Disabled toilet facilities are provided next to the First Aid tent. Parking is available on site for Blue Badge holders only – you will be guided by a steward from the top of Mill Lane.
