Train services are available to Stonehouse or Stroud Stations. From Stroud train station, a short walk along Station Street and Rowcroft Retreat will take you to Merrywalks, where you can catch bus number 20 which will pass Ebley Mill. These buses run every 20 minutes.
To walk from either station takes approximately 30 minutes.
Bus number 20 passes Ebley Mill - this goes between Stroud town centre (Merrywalks bus stn), Stonehouse, Dursley and Uley. The bus runs approximately half past the hour every hour. See www.stagecoachbus.com for further details.
