- Last checked December 2019. Everything OK.
- Post L is now a plaque on the nearby bench.
- nb. Y has had a tree fall around it, and getting at T is probably best done from the South.
- Feedback (Marcus, 24/9/16): Did the red course recently with details as follows … Y was very overgrown, path was blocked by fallen trees, very difficult to find. S was missing as far as I could tell.
