  • Course Status

  • Last checked March 2024. Everything OK.
  • NB. post W has been moved 50m SW away from brambles, and post F has been moved across the path, so a new map would be helpful.  NB.  take care near post D as there is barbed wire from the ruined fence lying about.
  • The main Start/Finish was damaged and has been moved a few metres North and a few feet higher to the fence above the end of the wall – see photo. 
  • Map updated December 2021 for a SELOC event.
  • March 2021 – post E has been relocated about 25m away from the bridge, after repeated vandalism.
  • nb.  J is a plaque on the fence next to the path junction, EE is a plaque on a fence corner, Z is a plaque on the low fence near the path junction.
  • Late 2017 … new plaques installed at S1 and S2.
