- Last checked October 2023. Everything OK.
- 20/12/2021 – control P has been moved to a nearby wall corner.
- A few controls are found as plaques mounted on existing posts or other items rather than as posts in their own right eg. D is now a plaque on the low fence.
- The garden valley between E and K has been very well renovated.
- Posts K, T and F may become overgrown in Summer.
