  • Course Status

  • Last checked February 2017.  Everything OK, except Y has had a tree fall around it.
  • 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.
