My husband and I stopped here first on our way to the Battle of Brandywine Visitors' Center. Signage is poor. We had no idea that this was THE battlefield. The cemetery right next to this has no connection to the battle.

Beautiful view. Nice spot for scenery pics - we do family photos here every year by the old stone wall. Small parking lot and limited places to walk. More of a stop for pics.

Lovely walk paralleling Birmingham Road and then down along side Meetinghouse Road. If you keep gong along Meetinghouse Road after the official trail ends you will see the "Marley and Me" house (the final home of Marley and family) at the junction with Creek Road.
