- NB. the rides around JJ are increasingly indistinct, though the paths along them are clear enough.
- NB. TT has been moved away from repeated vandalism – across the path to a new home between two large trees. Make sure you have the latest map !
- NB. The path up to control C becomes very overgrown in Summer.
- NB. It is feasible and safe to go between R and DD along the main road pavement.
